ISLAMABAD: Several people were injured when Indian troops used brute force against peaceful protesters in the Pulwama town of Indian held Kashmir on Monday.

According to the Kashmir Media Service (KMS), people took to the streets in various areas of Pulwama, and staged forceful demonstrations against the killing of four youths in violent cordon and search operations by Indian troops a day earlier.

Meanwhile, a complete shutdown was observed in Pulwama and Shopian against the killings of the youth. All shops, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed while traffic was off the roads.

Hundreds of Kashmiris visited the residences of the slain youths to pay tribute to them and express solidarity with their families.On the other hand, the Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq in a statement in Srinagar said the Hurriyat leadership has always been in favour of talks to settle the Kashmir dispute. A spokesman of the forum said the Kashmiris being the most affected party to the Kashmir dispute for the past 72 years naturally wanted its resolution.
