Forces given freehand to kill innocents: Hurriyat (M)
‘Condemns arrest of Doda youth’
Srinagar, Aug 17: Hurriyat Conference (M) on Tuesday accused government of giving freehand to armed forces to kill innocents and use all repressive methods to suppress the ongoing struggle in Kashmir.
The conglomerate strongly condemned the arrest and thrashing of 14 Kashmiri students in Jammu by the police, and demanded their immediate release. “The academic future of these students is being deliberately marred,” a Hurriyat spokesman said in a statement.
He also strongly condemned the use of ‘excessive force’ by the police on the peaceful demonstrators at Doda protesting against the innocent killings in Kashmir.
He alleged that the police arrested several demonstrators including Abdul Majid, Shiraz Ahmad, Irshad Ahmad, Shabir Ahmad and Ishtiyaq Ahmad and termed it highly condemnable.
The spokesman also condemned, what he said, the indiscriminate firing on peaceful demonstrators at Tral, Tengpora, Alochi Bagh, Bemina, Varmul, Sopur , Ganderbal, Kokarnag, Doda and other places.
