Srinagar, August 18, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, the puppet authorities continue to impose curfew and other restrictions across the Kashmir Valley on the 41st consecutive day, today, to prevent people from holding demonstrations against the killing spree.
Call for holding of the demonstrations has been jointly given by the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, and Hurriyet leaders, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik to register protest against the killing of innocent people by Indian forces during the ongoing Kashmir Intifada.
The occupied territory is on the boil since the extra-judicial murder of the top commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, Burhan Wani, by Indian troops on July 8. 80 people have been killed while over 80,00 injured so far in the firing of bullets, pallets, and teargas shells on peaceful protesters by Indian troops and police personnel.
The occupation authorities continue to put Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi under house arrest or in police custody to prevent them from leading the demonstrations.
Meanwhile, Hurriyet leader, Farooq Ahmed Tawheedi and the Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Political Movement in their statements in Srinagar strongly condemned the imposition of continued curfew and detention of Hurriyet leaders by the occupation authorities. They also expressed serious concern over the killing spree unleashed by Indian police and troops across the Kashmir Valley.
On the other hand, Indian police on Thursday morning barred the entry of several vehicles, carrying essential supplies like milk and veggies, into Srinagar city.
Witnesses said that around three dozen vehicles carrying milk and vegetables remained stationed at police station Parimpora on the outskirts of the city.
A senior police official told media that they have been ordered to enforce strict curfew. “…and we are obeying those orders.”
