Occupied Kashmir: Indian troops martyr senior Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leader
According to reports, Indian armed agents barged into the house of Mir Hafeezullah in Achabal and opened indiscriminate fire, injuring him and his wife.
They were rushed to the nearby hospital where doctors declared Mir Hafeezullah as brought dead.
Earlier, three other Hurriyat leaders namely Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem, Hakeem-ur-Rehman Sultani and Tariq Ahmed Ganai had become victims of targeted killing by India since February this year.
Hurriyat leaders and organizations in their separate statements strongly condemned the target killing of Mir Hafeezullah. They termed the cold-blooded murder of Mir Hafeezullah as a part of deep Indian conspiracy to suppress genuine voices for freedom. They said the target killing of Hurriyat leaders betrays India’s acceptance of defeat in Kashmir.
Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism also martyred four Kashmiri youth in Shopian district, today.
They were killed during a cordon and search operation in Nadigam area of the district.
The killing of youth triggered anti-India demonstrations in the area. Indian troops fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells on the protesters, injuring many of them including three women.
On the other hand,people mostly preferred to remain indoors during the second phase of the exercise enacted by India in the name of Panchayat polls in the territory.
