Srinagar, March 08, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) has denounced the assault on two Kashmiri dry fruit vendors by Hindu fanatics in Lucknow in Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. A spokesman for KCCI in a statement in Srinagar said that more condemnable than the attack was the State patronage extended to goons and hooligans in Uttar Pradesh and other Indian states.
He said the videos of the incident clearly shows it to be a case of attempt to murder and how the Uttar Pradesh police interpreted it to be a case of one man riot is indicative of external influence. The spokesman said the State of Uttar Pradesh has, by its brazen patronage, shown scant regard for the directives of the Supreme Court of India issued to the Uttar Pradesh Chief Secretary and the Director General of Police for taking prompt and necessary action to prevent incidents of threat and assault on Kashmiris.
