In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred two youth in Kulgam district, today (Wednesday).

According to Kashmir Media Service, the youth were martyred by the troops during a cordon and search in Nawapora area of the district.

All Parties Hurriyat Conference has said that the Modi-led Indian government is killing innocent Kashmiri youth as state policy in fake encounters in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

APHC spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said the troops pick the youth from their homes, take them to areas in the Kashmir valley and along the Line of Control and kill them after dubbing them as militants.

The authorities continued to enforce strict restrictions in the name of security of the Hindu pilgrimage Amarnath Yatra in the territory.

Meanwhile, Peoples Democratic Party chief Mehbooba Mufti and National Conference Vice President Omar Abdullah strongly criticized the Modi government for arresting journalist Mohammad Zubair on fabricated charges.

Human Rights Watch also asked India to immediately release rights activist Teesta Setalvad, who is being victimized by the Modi government for pursuing accountability for perpetrators of 2002 Muslim genocide in Gujarat.

On the other hand, a Dalit couple was tortured to death by a gang of Hindu extremists in Aligarh.
