Dukhtaran-e-Millat (DeM) secretary general Nahida Nasreen today said the "forces armed with impunity under AFSPA were carrying out a systematic genocide of young population in Kashmir."
Nasreen expressed shock and strongly denounced the "killing" of 16 year old student Qaiser Hameed Sofi of Shalimar.
"Qaiser was arrested by forces. He was beaten, tortured and forcibly fed with germicides which led to his death. He was to appear in his class 10th examination this year," Nasreen, in a statement today, said.
Nasreen called upon the international human rights bodies to wake up to the "brutalities" being inflicted on Kashmiris.
