Pro-Pakistani demonstrators protest, defying curfew in Srinagar

SRINAGAR (Indian Occupied Kashmir): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities clamped curfew in Srinagar, Sopore, Kupwara, Handwara and Bandipore while imposing strict restrictions in Baramulla, Pulwama, Islamabad, Kulgam, Budgam and other towns on Friday to thwart anti-India demonstrations, reports KMS.

Life continued to remain disrupted in the Valley with shops, business establishments, educational institutions and banks remaining closed and traffic off the road.

Despite restrictions, people staged protests in Srinagar, Budgam, Pampore, Shopian, Pulwama, Sumbal, Safapora, Hajan and Langate areas. Indian police subjected the demonstrators to heavy baton charge and excessive teargas shelling, injuring several of them.

The occupation authorities continued to place the APHC Chairman, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi and Yasmeen Raja under house arrest. They were not even allowed to offer Juma prayers. Due to curfew, Juma congregational prayers could not be held at Jamia Masjid in Srinagar for the fourth successive Friday, today.

On the other hand, the APHC Chairman in a statement issued in Srinagar appealed to the Organisation of Islamic Conference to take serious note of the death and destruction being caused by Indian troops in the occupied territory.

Illegally detained veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader Syed Ali Gilani was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit in Soura Institute of Medical Sciences after his condition deteriorated at Cheshmashahi sub-jail.

The Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Movement, Ghulam Ahmed Mir addressing party workers in Jammu deplored that India was using brutal tactics against the innocent people of Kashmir to suppress their struggle for right to self-determination.

Another report says; at least twenty-two people were injured when Indian police subjected demonstrators to brute force at different places. Despite restrictions and rains, people took to streets in Srinagar, Shopian and Baramulla and staged anti-India demonstrations.

Police resorted to heavy teargas shelling and aerial firing to quell the demonstrators in which about two-dozen people were injured. The police also arrested nearly half-a-dozen youth from Shopian.

The residents of the Valley have been complaining of acute shortage of essentials including milk, medicines and edibles due to the continued restrictions imposed by the occupation authorities. “Shopkeepers have already exhausted their stocks,” Mehmood Ahmad, a resident of Srinagar, told mediamen.
