Life remains paralyzed in IOK for 69th day today

Srinagar, September 15, 2016 (PPI-OT):In occupied Kashmir, normal life continues to remain paralyzed for the 69th consecutive day, today, across the Kashmir Valley where heavy deployment of Indian forces’ personnel has been made by the puppet authorities to prevent people from staging demonstrations against civilian killings.

All shops, business establishments and educational institutions are closed while transport is off the road on the call of united resistance leadership comprising the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, and Hurriyet leaders, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.

The occupation authorities also continue to suspend broadband internet services across the Valley.

It is to mention here that over 100 civilians have been killed and more than 11, 500 injured due to the firing of pellets, bullets and teargas shells by Indian police and troops on protesters during the ongoing Kashmir Intifada. The Intifada was triggered by the killing of top commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, Burhan Muzaffar Wani, in a fake encounter by Indian troops on July 8, this year.
