In occupied Kashmir, over two dozens persons were injured when Indian police and paramilitary personnel fired rubber bullets, burst smoke shells and resorted to brute force to disperse demonstrators in Maisuma, Gawkadal, Red Cross Road, Exchange Road Baramulla, Sopore and other areas. According to Kashmir Media Service, the policemen arrested dozens of youth on fake charges during house raids in different areas of the occupied territory while one Owais Ahmad alias Mandela of Maisuma was booked under draconian Public Safety Act and was shifted to Kot Bhalwal jail, Jammu. Indian police and paramilitary personnel fired rubber bullets, lobbed teargas shells and swung batons to disperse hundreds of youth who were protesting against human rights violations in the occupied territory. Several people including Ishfaq Ahmad of Batpora, Sopore, who were hit by rubber bullets were hospitalised. The eye of an 18-year-old boy, Mohammed Ishaq Lone was damaged when a rubber bullet hit him in Baramulla town. Protestors talking to media men at Maisuma condemning the arrest of the youth across the Kashmir valley said, "Police are arresting people at their own will. We will continue our protests and strike till our brothers are not released." "The paramilitary troopers beat up the civilians, mainly pedestrians, in market places and also smashed the windowpanes of the parked vehicles," residents of Sopore said. Meanwhile, Bomai in Sopore observed complete shutdown to commemorate the martyrdom anniversary of two youth killed by the troopers on February 21, last year. The family members and relatives of the martyred youth have demanded action against the men in uniform, who were indicted by the probe for the killings.
