Indian Army using chemical weapons in occupied Kashmir

MUZAFFARABAD: The top leadership of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) government on Wednesday called on the world community and the UN to take strict notice of the reported use of chemical weapons against unarmed Kashmiris.

This was stated by the AJK President Sardar Masood Khan during a meeting with the AJK Prime Minister Farooq Haider held on Wednesday.

They accused India of putting regional peace at stake by pursuing an aggressive policy of using brutal force against its dissidents.

Farooq said Indian forces had been killing Kashmiri youth on the pretext of police encounters across the valley.

Ceasefire violations along the Line of Control, detention of the Hurriyat leaders by Indian authorities, the on-going China-Pakistan Economic (CPEC) projects in AJK, and the deteriorating situation in Indian-held Kashmir, were among the matters discussed during the meeting.

Farooq told the AJK president that they had taken welfare measures for the people affected by border clashes along the LoC.

Revealing his government’s plan to establish a science college in Rawalkot, Farooq said that the government was devising a comprehensive plan to improve the education system in the region. Under the plan, schools across AJK would be upgraded, while new teachers will also be appointed where necessary.
