ISLAMABAD, June 15 (APP): Kashmir: Can Indian Army suppress Kashmiris hatred for India
People staged protests in Bemina and Batamaloo areas of Srinagar, Indian occupied Kashmir against the killing of a youth-Sheikh Tanveer Hussain and a woman by Indian troops during checking in a passenger bus at Kud on Srinagar-Jammu highway, KMS reported.
Indian police and army fired teargas shells on protesters in Bemina who were demanding the body of the martyred youth. The police had sealed all entry points of the area to prevent people from visiting the victim family.
Several people were injured in police action on a protest demonstration erupted after an Indian Army vehicle hit and critically injured a motorcyclist at Lawaypora on Srinagar-Baramulla Highway.
Meanwhile, the Indian police have launched a massive hunt for Hurriyet leaders and activists to foil a joint protest sit-in for Wednesday at Lal Chowk in Srinagar for which call was given by Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik against anti-Kashmir policies of India.
Syed Ali Gilani in his statement issued in Srinagar condemned the arrests and reaffirmed resolve to go ahead with the protest programme. He said that Jammu and Kashmir was a human and political issue, and needed to be resolved in a political way, as Kashmiris never accepted the military occupation of their territory by India.
