Brutal Indian forces have launched a cordon and search operations (CASOs) in Baramulla and Poonch districts of illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

According to the local media, a joint team of Indian Army’s 22RR, Special Operation Group of Indian police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force cordoned off Raj Mohalla of Warpora and conducted house to house searches in Warpora village of Sopore in Baramulla district, today.

The reports added that all entry and exit points were sealed by the Indian forces’ personnel before the start of house-to-house searches in the area.

In a recent report by local media in IIOJ&K, it was revealed that Indian troops are violating all basic rights of the people including the right to privacy in the territory.

According to the report, Indian occupational forces target Kashmiris even inside their homes. It said, barging into houses, harassing and arresting inmates and vandalizing property is a routine matter for Indian troops in IIOJK.

The report pointed out that Kashmiri women are sexually harassed during house raids. It deplored that India was using molestation of women as a weapon of war to suppress the Kashmiris’ freedom struggle and over 11,200 cases of rape, gang-rape, and molestation by Indian troops had been reported in IIOJK since January 1989 till date. “How can India claim to be a democratic state when it is trampling every right of the Kashmiri people?” it asked.
