In occupied Kashmir, the drowning of a 7th class student after being beaten up by the personnel of Special Operations Group of Indian Police in Baramulla town, sparked massive protests. According to Kashmir Media Service, eyewitnesses told media men that on the Saturday evening SOG men in a private truck chased protesters in Azadgunj Bridge area of town. "The SOG men went berserk and beat up the youth and one of them was pushed into river Jhelum," they said, adding that the youth, Faizan Rafiq Buhroo and a student of class 7, couldn't swim across the river and drowned. Following the incident, forceful demonstrations erupted in the town. Indian police used brute force against the demonstrators, injuring at least six persons. The authorities clamped curfew and imposed restrictions in Srinagar and other towns of the Kashmir valley, today, to prevent people from holding anti-India and pro-liberation demonstrations. Meanwhile, a thirty-five-year old mason, Abdul Majid Lone who was shot at and injured at Fidarpora in Rafiabad on Friday night told media men that he saw two personnel of Special Operations Group behind him after being shot. "I was coming back from daily work and suddenly I was shot in back at about 8:30 pm. After the bullet hit me, I looked back and saw two SOG personnel behind me. They straightaway went to their camp in the area," he said.
