Young Junaid was killed inside his house: Family

Earlier, as soon as Junaid was laid to rest at martyrs’ graveyard in Eidgah, the family members, relatives and neighbours, mostly women took to streets and raised anti-India and pro-freedom slogans.

Family members of 12-year-old Junaid Ahmad on Saturday said that he was killed inside his house.

They alleged that government forces barged into their residential house and fired pellets on him.

A family member told KNS that Junaid was at home when forces barged into their house and showered pellets on him.

“He was not out to fetch toffee from (army) camp or to fetch milk from police station,” she said while ridiculing the similar statement of Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.

The family members demanded action against the forces personnel involved in the “killing of their beloved.”
