Over 3300 security personnel injured in Kashmir violence

Over 3300 security personnel injured in Kashmir violence

Most people in the India-controlled part resent the presence of hundreds of thousands of Indian troops and support the rebel cause.

To encash on misguided sentiments of the locals, Wani told the protesters that he was ready to offer his only daughter for the fight against "Indian occupation" after "sacrificing" his two sons, claimed eyewitnesses.

NEW DELHI (AP) - Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday appealed to the people of Indian-controlled Kashmir to shun violence in his first public comments on the region's situation after a month marked by massive anti-India protests and deadly violence. Shops and schools were closed because of the security crackdown and a separatist-sponsored protest strike.

Separatist politicians, who challenge India's sovereignty over Kashmir, have called on residents to resist the crackdown and stage protests when troops raid neighborhoods to arrest young people.

Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin asked Pakistan to snap diplomatic ties with India if a "peaceful solution" to the ongoing violence in Kashmir is not reached. Pakistan denies the charge, saying it only provides moral and political support to Kashmiris.




More than 3,300 security personnel have been injured in over 1,000 violent incidents in Kashmir have been reported since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8, the police said on Sunday.

1989 when the armed rebellion against Indian rule over the Himalayan territory began.

Earlier this week, a 20-year-old lost his life as 360 pellets were pumped into him.

"The magnitude of the humanitarian crisis in IHK has compelled us to immediately pool our material and human resources for treating the victims", said the prime minister.

In Friday's shootings, two protesters were killed in the west of Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir state's summer capital, and one in the north of the city after crowds began attacking police and paramilitary positions following Friday prayers, a senior police officer said.
