Dozens of Kashmiri protesters injured and arrested in clashes with Indian troops
SRINAGAR: Scores of Kashmiri protesters were injured and arrested in clashes with security forces on the eleventh day of lockdown in the occupied territory.
As the Kashmir lockdown entered 11th day on Thursday, the protesters hoisted black flags to denounce Indian revocation of Kashmir’s special status.
The stocks of food, commodities of daily use and even medicines has run out complicating problems for the Kashmiris. The markets and stocks are closed due to the unending curfew and resultantly people cannot access food items, creating a serious crisis. The children are worst sufferers of the predicament. The Kashmiris have become hostage in their own houses and towns with continued curfew.
The Indian troops further tightened security in different parts of the occupied territory as the Kashmiris observed the Indian Independence Day as Black Day and held widespread demonstrations and rallies against the occupation. Thousands of armed troops are patrolling streets and lanes in Pulwama, Kishtawar, Poonch and Srinagar.
