In Occupied Kashmir, several people were injured after Indian forces subjected peaceful protesters to brute force in Shopian district on Saturday.
Indian forces thrashed the people after barging into their houses at Werpora in Nagbal area. Property worth crores of rupees was vandalized by the forces.
The action triggered massive demonstrations in the area. Indian police and troops fired pellets and bullets on the protesters injuring many of them.
Meanwhile, complete shutdown in the Kashmir Valley continued on the 99th consecutive day, today, against the civilian killings and other brutalities of Indian forces.
In their statements, Hurriyet leaders strongly denounced the arrest spree and the reign of terror unleashed by Indian police and troops across the territory. They said that no amount of Indian state terrorism could intimidate the Kashmiris into submission.
In a joint statement, the world human rights watchdogs, the Amnesty International India-chapter, Human Rights Watch and the International Commission of Jurists said that the authorities in Occupied Kashmir should end the use of black law, Public Safety Act, to arbitrarily detain people including children.
They said Public Safety Act violates international due process standards and should be repealed.
