In occupied Kashmir, Indian police have arrested over a dozen youth including Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front leaders and activists from different areas of the territory.

According to Kashmir Media Service, in the wake of India banning the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front on Friday, police arrested around half a dozen leaders including Bashir Ahmad Boya and Abdur Rasheed Mugloo from Baramulla, Ganderbal and southern districts during nocturnal raids. The troops arrested, at least, seven youth during house raids at Arhama in Shopian district.

Indian police also arrested two Kashmiri youth on return from Pakistan who had gone to Pakistan on legal documents.

Meanwhile, clashes broke out between Indian forces’ personnel and the local youth after Indian troops cordoned off Arwani area in south Kashmir’s Islamabad district.

The participants of a meeting of the Jammu and Kashmir Freedom Movement in Jammu urged the international community to come forward in a big way to rescue the people of Jammu and Kashmir from growing atrocities of Indian forces in Kashmir.
