Srinagar: Indian Army shot dead three youths during a so-called search operation in occupied Kashmir.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the incident of martyrdom of Kashmiri youth took place in Pulwama district where the occupying Indian army closed the entrances and exits and insulted women during house-to-house searches, tortured elders and children and arrested the youth.

During the search operation, 3 youths were caught and brought out of their houses and then martyred by firing indiscriminately. The aggressive Indian army tried to counter the martyrdom of the youth.

The puppet administration, in gross violation of human rights, refused to hand over the bodies to the family members. Residents and family members blocked the highway in protest.

The demonstrators chanted slogans in support of the struggle for independence of Kashmir and against the aggression of the Indian Army.

It may be recalled that 11 Kashmiris were martyred in Occupied Kashmir last month out of which 3 were tortured to death while in custody while 12 houses were destroyed.
