Srinagar, April 11 (KG): Indian troops killed 12 more Kashmiri youth over the past 72 hours in the occupied Kashmir.
Three youth were slain by the troops in Hadipora area of Shopian and two in Bijbehara area of Islamabad district, today. Earlier, the troops killed seven youth in separate cordon and search operations in Shopian and Pulwama districts on Thursday and Friday. The authorities snapped internet services in Shopian, Kulgam and Islamabad districts of South Kashmir.

Clad in black burqas, dozens of Kashmiri women took out a burqa procession in reaction to a function sponsored by BJP and RSS against the Kahmiris’ ethos and norms in Srinagar. Holding placards in favour of veil and headscarf, the women gathered at Nehru Park in Srinagar and took out the march. They said that the Modi-led fascist Indian government wants to rob Kashmiri women of their traditional dress and impose an alien culture on them. It is worth mentioning here that the event in the name of ‘ Fashion Show’ was recently organized at the Kashmir International Convention Centre in Srinagar in a bid to distract the Kashmiris’ attention from the ongoing freedom movement.
