Indian troops martyred three Kashmiris in the Kulgram district of the occupied valley on Friday, another fresh act of state terrorism in a series of many conducted by New Delhi this year.
According to a report published by the Kashmir Media Service (KMS), three Kashmiri youths were martyred during a cordon and search operation in the district’s Nagnad Chimmer area.
The three youths martyred by the Indian troops are yet to be identified.
Tensions in the restive valley have risen after India abolished Article 370 of the Constitution, which grants special status to Indian occupied Kashmir, and deployed an unprecedented numbers of troops in the region.
The resolution revoked the special status granted to occupied Kashmir and made the state a Union Territory with the legislature.
Indian Home Minister Amit Shah had said that the occupied valley has been bifurcated into two Union territories – Jammu and Kashmir, which will have a legislature, and Ladakh, which will be without a legislature.
