In occupied Kashmir, Indian troops in their unabated acts of state terrorism martyred 10 Kashmiris during the last month of October.
According to the data issued by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, of those martyred one youth was killed by the troops in a fake encounter.
During the month, 57 people were critically injured due to the firing of bullets, pellets and teargas shells on peaceful demonstrators by Indian military, paramilitary and police personnel in the occupied territory. At least 67 civilians, mostly youth and political activists, were arrested.
The troops molested, abused or disgraced 30 women after barging into the residential houses and damaged three houses during cordon and search operations in the month.
