Concern expressed over killing of innocent Kashmiris in fake encounters


Srinagar: In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, All Parties Hurriyat Conference leaders have expressed concern over unending dark black night caused by the brutalities of Indian occupation troops in length and breadth of the territory.

The leaders in their statements in Srinagar referred to the recent confirmation by the Indian Army that its troops led by Captain Bhoopendra Singh staged July 2020 fake encounter in Amshipora area of Shopian district and demanded a probe into all other such massacres.

It is worth mentioning here that three labourers, one of them a teenager, were killed by Indian army soldiers led by Captain Bhoopendra Singh in Shopian district on July 18, 2020, and on the very next day, July 19, 2020, the army claimed that it had killed three “terrorists”. The Hurriyat leaders described the so-called initiation of Court Martial proceedings against the Captain as mere eyewash to hoodwink the international community.

The Hurriyat leaders mentioned martyrdom of three Kashmiri businessmen and a dental surgeon in Hyderpora, Srinagar, one in Gund Jahangir, Bandipora, five in Pathribal and three in Machil fake encounters on different occasions as the glaring examples of how Indian troops are mercilessly killing the innocent Kashmiri youth in fake encounters.
