Srinagar, April 13, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front, Muhammad Yasin Malik has said that Kashmir stands at the top of those areas which have a highest military concentration and this fact has even been vindicated by Guinness Book of world records. Muhammad Yasin Malik, who is under house arrest in Srinagar, in a statement said that the puppet administration led by Omar Abdullah was pursuing the policy of repression and suppression against the Kashmiris.
He said that the people who were sitting in the corridors of power in the territory or in the so-called Kashmir assembly had been assigned the job of giving a legal cover to killer forces and they were playing their part to appease their masters in New Delhi.
Illegally detained All Parties Hurriyet Conference leader, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, talking to media men at Saddar Court in Srinagar said that pro-liberation leaders were being lodged in jails outside the Kashmir Valley under political vendetta. He maintained that such tactics could not stop the people of Kashmir from achieving their inalienable right to self-determination. Nayeem Khan was produced before a court in Srinagar in connection with a false case registered against him and later lodged at Kot Bhalwal jail in Jammu.
The spokesman of Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu and Kashmir in a statement in Srinagar demanded an immediate release of unlawfully detained Kashmiris including political detainees and withdrawal of Indian troops from the occupied territory.
On the other hand, several people were injured when Indian police resorted to baton charge and teargas shelling on peaceful protesters in Baramulla town. Protest strike continued in the town for the fourth consecutive day, today, against the presence of Indian army camps and detention of youth in the area.
The family members of a civilian, Muhammad Ismail Shah, who was murdered in Srinagar central jail by the police, earlier this month, tried to take out a rally from Press Enclave to Residency Road in Srinagar. However, the police took them into custody after thrashing them severely.
