The crisis of humanity is reaching an alarming proportion while the lock down has entered 26th day in occupied Kashmir, today.

India has stepped up its state terrorism in the occupied territory increasing its brutalities against the innocent Kashmiris. It has turned the Kashmir valley into a big open-air jail and a hell for its inhabitants.

According to Kashmir media service (KMS), Yesterday Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism martyred a Kashmiri youth in Sopore area of Baramulla district.

The youth was killed during siege and search operation in Warpora area of Sopore.

The operation continued till last reports came in.

On the other hand, the US State Department in a statement raised serious concerns over reports of detentions and continued curfew in occupied Kashmir adding that respect for the human rights should be ensured in the territory. As per media reports, the US has also sought details from India regarding the situation in occupied Kashmir.

A group of five UN experts on human rights in a statement calling for an end to crackdown in occupied Kashmir demanded of the Indian government to lift curbs on the freedom of expression in the territory.

Earlier, Kashmiris have defied curfew and came out of their houses in Srinagar and protested against abrogation of the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.

Several people were injured when the troops used force and fired metal pellets and tear gas on the protesters.

Some city residents said they had been assaulted or verbally abused by the forces who also damaged their properties after they raided their homes.

In Srinagar, at least a dozen witnesses said police and paramilitary officials had raided several homes, picking up dozens of men and damaging their houses with stones and rods.

The authorities have turned the valley, particularly Srinagar, into a military garrison by deploying thousands of Indian troops and police personnel in every nook and corner.

In Srinagar, troops and policemen are patrolling the deserted streets, lanes and by lanes to thwart any attempt of people to stage anti-India demonstrations.
