Incidents of suicide, fratricide among Indian troops increase in IOJ&K July 22, 2020

ISLAMABAD-In occupied Kashmir, the incidents of suicide and fratricide among Indian troops, especially the personnel of paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force have shown an upward trend.

The level of frustration is very high among the Indian soldiers due to posting for longer period in the occupied territory away from family, denial of leaves and insulting behaviour of officers.

The guilt of killing, arresting, torturing and committing other atrocities on innocent Kashmiris without any reason also leaves deep impacts on the psychology of the Indian forces’ personnel.

The heightened frustration is resulting in the increasing incidents of suicides and fratricide among Indian soldiers in occupied Kashmir.

It may be recalled that 458 Indian troops and police personnel have committed suicides in occupied Kashmir since January 2007 till date.
