Srinagar, November 29, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, seven Indian troops including a Major were killed and nine others were injured in two separate attacks in Jammu region, today.
Seven troops were killed and as many were wounded after gunmen attacked Indian Army’s 166 field regiment camp in Nagrota area of Jammu. The Deputy Inspector General of Border Security Force along with five other personnel was injured in an attack in Ramgarh area of Samba district in Jammu. Indian army has claimed of killing seven attackers in these areas.
On the other hand, Indian police arrested the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik, in south Kashmir’s Shopian district, today. A JKLF spokesman in a statement said that Yasin Malik was arrested outside the Jamia Masjid Shopian when he came out of the mosque after offering afternoon prayers. He said that Yasin Malik had reached Shopian late last night and met a pellet victim, Insha Mushtaq. The 14-year-old Insha Mushtaq had lost eyesight in both eyes after Indian troops fired pellets on her when she was standing in the window of her house on 12th July, 2016.
The All Parties Hurriyet Conference in a statement in Srinagar strongly criticized Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi’s assertions in which he tried to falsely link the participation of students in the ongoing examinations with their trust on the so-called development mantra. The APHC said, education has been the prime concern of the Kashmiri society, as no parents can afford to keep their children away from the glory of education, but it doesn’t mean that they have lost path to struggle for right to self-determination.
Senior APHC leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi addressing a gathering in Srinagar hailed the devotion of the Kashmiri people towards the mission of their martyrs.
The illegally detained Chairman of Democratic Freedom Party, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, in a statement hailed the farewell speech of Pakistan’s outgoing Army Chief, General Raheel Sharif, in which he said that permanent peace in the region could not be established without resolving the Kashmir dispute. Shabbir Shah hoped that the new Pakistani Army Chief would follow the course.
The Tehreek-e-Hurriyet Jammu Kashmir in a statement in Srinagar while denouncing the arrest spree unleashed by the puppet authorities said arrests, intimidation and night raids could not deter the Kashmiri people from continuing their ongoing liberation struggle.
