Separatists stage protest
‘APD Failed To Deliver’
SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, June 12: Police on Tuesday arrested several separatist leaders and activists, who were on way to United Nations Military Observers Group (UNMOG) office at Sonawar here. They were seeking probe into 2008, 2009 and 2010 civilian killings by the United Nations (UN).
Hundreds of activists led by Shabir Ahmad Shah, Nayeem Khan, Javed Mir, Zafar Akbar Bhat and Yasmeen Raja appeared in Lal Chowk this morning and tried to march towards UN office. However, a huge contingent of police reached on the spot and detained them. They were bundled in Police vehicles and were lodged at Police Station Kothibagh. Later they were escorted to their respective house and were put under house arrest. Talking to reporters earlier they said: “Around 317 civilians were killed in 2008, 2009 and 2010, after Police and CRPF opened fire on peaceful demonstrations across the Valley.”
“People had come out on streets in 2008, 2009 and 2010 to protest peacefully to express their view point regarding resolution of the Kashmir issue. However, brute force was used to suppress their voice,” they added.
They demanded that these killings should be probed by United Nations.
Taking a dig at All Party Delegation that visited the Valley amidst unrest in 2010, they said, “The APD had promised many things. Nothing was done, atrocities, brutalities and human rights violations continue,” they added.
