Srinagar, June 29, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, several people were injured, some of them critically, when Indian troops used brute force on peaceful protesters in Pulwama town, today. People took to the streets at Chatpora in the town after the troops launched a cordon and search operation in adjacent Thamuna area.
