UNITED NATIONS UN Secretary General Ban ki-Moon Tuesday broke his silence over killings of freedom-seeking people in Indian Occupied Kashmir when he called for an immediate end to violence in the disputed territory. The Secretary General regrets the latest loss of life, his spokesman Martin Nesirky said in carefully-word remarks. He (Ban) calls for an immediate end to violence, the Spokesman added in response to a question about deteriorating situation in Kashmir, which has been wracked by pro-freedom demonstrations. India has reacted by clamping a 24-hour curfew across the Kashmir valley. The security forces resort to use of indiscriminate force has drawn condemnation from several quarters including the Organisation of Islamic Conference and neighbouring Pakistan. Ban urged calm and restraint by all concerned and continues to follow the situation closely. Kashmir is a disputed territory as declared by the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the people of the region say they must get their promised rights. More than one hundred stone-throwing protestors have been killed in retaliatory firing by Indian security forces since July when the unrest broke out.
