Mourning Continues In Kashmir On 3rd Day

Mourning Continues In Kashmir On 3rd Day

At least 20 people were killed in a search operation conducted by the Indian forces in Shopian district of the restive region on Sunday.

The government regularly reviews the security situation in Jammu and Kashmir and in order to prevent activities of militants, numerous steps have been taken including strengthening of operational grid with enhanced human intelligence and use of technical intelligence grid.

Police opened fire with live rounds and pellet guns on mourners attending the funerals of slain militants and on crowds who threw stones and chanted slogans against Indian rule.

"They say everything is fine in Kashmir, but look what happens here", she said, also declining to give her name.

The Indian police force in Kashmir, for its part, asked on Twitter for residents "not to fall prey to any speculations and #rumors which are meant to disturb #peace".

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Monday expressed his dismay over the killings in south Kashmir's Shopian district.

Authorities have also clamped a curfew in the old parts of Kashmir's main city of Srinagar, the urban centre of protests and clashes against Indian rule.

Reports from Shopian said that several protesters sustained injuries in shotgun pellet firing by the security forces in the town's Gol Chowk area on Monday.

No charges to be filed in Alton Sterling case, according to family
One had been previously involved in the shooting of another black man two years prior that had led to administrative leave. The officers were responding to a report that Sterling was selling CDs and that he allegedly threatened a man with a gun.

A large majority of civilians in Kashmir - India's only Muslim-majority state - support the freedom fighters who have been fighting for decades for independence or for a merger with Pakistan.

The strike call had been issued by Farooq Ahmad, the imam of the Jamia Masjid in Kishtwar, against the killings of four civilians in forces' action in Shopian district on Sunday.

The occupation authorities have suspended train services between Baramulla and Bannihal besides ordering closure of schools and colleges in the Kashmir Valley to stop students from registering their protest against the bloodbath carried out by Indian troops.

Pakistan, it said, expresses its full solidarity with Kashmiris and "we urge worldwide community to take cognisance of the gross and systematic violations of fundamental human rights".

Earlier, the report said that most of the tourists reached Srinagar airport early Tuesday in a bid to escape being stoned by the protestors. Rebels are demanding the region be made part of Pakistan or become an independent country.

Many traders were also detained by police. India accuses Pakistan of arming and training the rebels, a charge Pakistan denies.

India and Pakistan each administer parts of Kashmir, but both claim the territory in its entirety.
