Protest in Srinagar against civilian killings in Kulgam

Srinagar, July 09, 2018 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, a protest demonstration was held at Aabi Guzar in Srinagar against the killing of civilians by Indian army in Kulgam district on Saturday. The protest was organized by the Joint Resistance Leadership and was attended by leaders including Imtiaz Ahmad Shah, Nisar Hussain Rather, Master Abdur Rasheed, Muhammad Shafi Mir, Sheikh Abdur Rasheed, Imran Butt and others.

The protesters assembled at Abi Guzar and tried to march towards Lal Chowk when a large posse of police intercepted the protesters near Central market Abi Guar and detained many of protesters including resistance leaders.

Meanwhile, traffic came to a standstill on the airport road after the family and relatives of four boys detained during a night raid staged a protest in Hyderpora area of Srinagar on Monday. Scores of women staged a sit-in on the road near Jamia Masjid to demand the release of four boys detained by the forces in the area on Saturday.

The protesters said the boys were playing near a ground in Hyderpora when the blast took place. “These boys were picked up by the forces during a night raid on Saturday. They are so young. They have nothing to do with the blast,” said a protesting woman. The protest triggered a serpentine traffic jam on the busy road that leads to Srinagar International airport.
