Srinagar: Killing and wounding Kashmiris with impunity and then unleashing crackdown against resistance camp to stop mourning and protests, has been the main feature of PDP led Indian rule in Kashmir, said Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal in a statement on Tuesday.
He said for the last four days, bullets, pellets, nocturnal raids and arrests have become an order of the day which has exposed Indian democracy in Kashmir.
The statement said JKLF delegation reached Shopian on Tuesday and met with the bereaved families of slain militants and civilians.
The statement added, Police on Monday raided JKLF office at Abi Guzar and arrested zonal organizer Bashir Ahmad Kashmiri who was today shifted to central jail Srinagar. JKLF vice chairman Showkat Ahmad Bakshi was also placed under house arrest from last Sunday. Today police shifted him to Bemina police station from where he has also been shifted to central jail Srinagar. Police has also arrested JKLF deputy chief organizer Siraj ud din Mir from his Tangmarg residence and he has been detained at police station Kunzar. Police also raided the residence of JKLF zonal president Noor Muhammad Kalwal at Malabagh late Mondaynight.
Police, SOG and CRPF at 1:30 during night barged into the residence of Noor Sahib after jumping over the outer walls as if they were doing some military exercise and after forced entry into the house, threatened and intimidated his family, JKLF statement said.
Strongly condemning this ongoing police oppression, Kalwal in a statement said, Police and forces first kill and wound Kashmiris with impunity and then to stop peaceful protest and mourning, start operations to arrest and intimidate resistance camp.
