Srinagar: In their fresh act of state terrorism, Indian forces martyred three more youth in occupied Kashmir on Saturday.

The Indian forces martyred the youth during a violent siege and search operation in Watyun area of youth in Tral town, according to Kashmir Media Services.

Separately, Indian police have arrested 12 minors including a Hurriyat leader’s son in Islamabad town of the IoK.

The police took into custody 11 minors and 12-year-old Reyyan Mukhtar, the son of Hurriyat leader Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, during anti-India demonstrations in the town.

Meanwhile, complete shutdown is being observed in the town against the desecration of Jamia Masjid and the arrest of dozens of boys by Indian forces.

The locals said that pro-freedom songs were being played from loudspeakers of the Jamia Masjid on Friday when Indian police and paramilitary personnel barged into the mosque.

The forces’ personnel also dragged several youth and detained them, the locals said. They said that the police and paramilitary personnel first surrounded the mosque and then charged inside.

“They caught hold of over a dozen youth, who were raising slogans in the upper storey of the mosque. A youth fell through the ceiling of top floor while trying to escape. He was injured and detained by the police men,” eyewitnesses said.

The locals said that the forces were abusing and smashing everything, whatever came their way, in the mosque.
