Teams from Amnesty, Asian Watch, OHCHR, ICJ, ICRC asked to visit town
Srinagar, June 22: The reports gleaning from Sopore have revealed that brutal Indian troops under a sinister plan on Saturday night cordoned off the entire town right from Arampora to Batapora, picked more than 100 teenage boys, made them to stand in a line and started beating them mercilessly.
As per evidences gathered by International Forum for Justice Human Rights Jammu and Kashmir, Indian troops from Seelo Watlab and Amargrah camps carried out the plan to intimidate and harass the locals.
Dozens of the boys fell unconscious and they were not given any medical treatment and if anybody asked for shifting them to hospitals they were also beaten.
The boys were forced to chant slogans like ‘Jai Hind and ‘Jai Sia Ram’, and were also asked to bad mouth Pakistan. The boys were beaten so ruthlessly that they are unable to lisp down as the wounds are so deep and horrifying that the medical treatment could not subside the pain.
All the boys are bedridden and the fear is so much that the local media blacked out these terror acts of occupational forces.
The boys and their families were threatened with dire consequences if they reported these incidents to anyone.
IFJHRJK Chairman Mohammad Ahsan Untoo in a statement appealed to Amnesty International, Asian Watch, UNOHRC, International Court of Justice, and International Committee of Red Cross, European Parliamentarian Group, European Union and other organisations to visit Sopore and get first hand information.
Every house has an injured person. These kind of state-sponsored terror tactics have failed so for to intimidate and keep people away from demanding their right of self determination.
He demanded an impartial probe by United Nations to punish those involved in state terrorism by the International Court of justice.
