Police fire on funeral of Kashmir man killed by soldiers

Police fire on funeral of Kashmir man killed by soldiers

Officials say that's nonsense, and that the vehicle was surrounded by a crowd of angry young men, some of whom fell beneath the jeep-like auto when they tried to pull the soldiers out and lynch them.

This in the second case in less than a month of a protester being run over by a vehicle belonging to the security forcee.

The protester who died on Friday was critically injured after a paramilitary police vehicle hit several men during an anti-India demonstration.

The protests were largely peaceful Friday, with government forces hanging back after the previous week, when over 50 people were injured in fierce clashes.

As per the agreed plan, volunteers from the Anjuman-e-Auqaf Jamia Masjid stood on guard at the entry and exit gates while the authorities did not deploy any policeman and soldier in or around the mosque.

While locals and many human rights activists called the civilian deaths as a blatant use of force to quell protests, the J&K police have challenged the versions and stated that the security forces' vehicle was torched by the protestors which led to the civilian coming under the CRPF van.

The troops also damaged sixty-seven (67) residential houses and disgraced six (6) women during the month.




Kaiser Bhat, 21, succumbed to injuries at the city's SKIMS hospital after he was knocked down by the speedy vehicle which had come under attack of stone throwers following Friday prayers on June 1.

"His parents died some years ago and now he along with his two teenage sisters were taken care by their aunt".

The condition of one of the two other youths also injured in the CRPF's action is stated be critical.

JKLF chairman Mohammad Yasin Malik was detained from his residence here, while moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was placed under house arrest today.

The mourners were marching with the man's body to a graveyard in Srinagar on Saturday when police and soldiers used force to stop them. He said security forces fired dozens of tear-smoke shells and pellets to chase them away. "The driver managed to take the vehicle out of crowd", he said.

A senior police official informed Kashmir News Service (KNS) that a case under FIR number 19/2018 under section 279 and 337 RPC has been registered against the CRPF over Nowhatta incident, wherein two youth were run over by a CRPF.
