SRINAGAR – Indian Army inhuman torture cells in Occupied Kashmir takes life of a teenager boy, private media had reported.
A teenage boy has lost his life after being subjected to inhumane torture by Indian troops at an army camp in the Pulwama district of Occupied Kashmir.
Yawar Ahmed Butt, 15, who was detained and tortured by the troops, was shifted to Srinagar’s SMHS hospital in serious condition, but he succumbed to his injuries.
The victim family from Pulwama’s Chandgam town told the Kashmir Media Service (KMS) that the boy was detained and beaten by the troops at an Indian army camp in the held-Valley.
The family added that Yawar had confined himself to a room for the whole day. He did not sleep in his parents’ room, as he would normally do. “Around 11pm, we saw him vomiting. He complained of headache, after which we took him to hospital in Pulwama,” a family member said.
According to a family member, Yawar was asked to report to an Army camp in the Tahab area next day.
Locals in the area said that the Indian troops had earlier snatched the identity cards of several Kashmiri boys.
Meanwhile, normal life remains disrupted in the occupied Jammu and Kashmir due to continued military lockdown on 49th successive day.
Millions of people have been besieged in their houses as hundreds of thousands of Indian troops continue to be deployed in every nook and corner of the valley since the hardline Hindu government of Modi-led BJP stripped the disputed state of its special status on August 5.
All shops, markets, business establishments and educational institutions remain closed while transport is off the road.
