Hurriyat Conference (M) has condemned use of nocturnal raids and ransacking of houses by forces in various areas of Kashmir.  

"We condemn the action of government forces for carrying nocturnal raids on the residences of the people, ransacking of household items and beating up of inmates. Government used indiscriminate force by firing pellets and tear gas shelling peaceful protestors across north, south and central Kashmir to stop people from participating in the 'Badamvari March' programme in Srinagar and 'Sopore March' and sabotaging the programme called by the unified resistance leadership," Hurriyat (M) spokesperson said in a statement.  

"Government forces had also fired indiscriminate pellets and tear gas shell at peaceful protestors at Radpora, Khanyar area of Shaher-e-Khaas where a 15-year-old Moin Mushtaq Sofi of Rozbal, Khanyar was injured in the eyes after being hit by pellets," he said.  

The spokesman said in continuation of its "repressive policy" the government has launched a crackdown on NGOs organizing relief to the injured patients at SMHS Hospital in last three months, "They have seized ambulances run by them and arrested the drivers, which is shameful. Dar- ul-khair Mirwaiz Manzil, which has been a part of the relief work at the hospital, has also been asked to stop its work and vacate. APHC strongly condemns this inhuman policy of the government," the spokesperson said. 

"We condemn beating up of people and burning of paddy crops and structures including cow sheds of locals in many villages in Qaimoh area of Kulgam district. We also condemn the killing of former sarpanch Fayaz Ahmed at Kandizal Pulwama calling it anti-Islamic and against humanity," it added.
