ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Augst,2016) : Puppet authorities continue to impose curfew and other restrictions across the Indian occupied Kashmir on the 41st consecutive day, on Thursday to prevent people from holding demonstrations against the killing spree. According to Kashmir Media Service, call for holding of the demonstrations has been jointly given by the All Parties Hurriyet Conference Chairman, Syed Ali Gilani, and Hurriyet leaders, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik to register protest against the killing of innocent people by Indian forces during the ongoing Kashmir Intifada. The occupied territory is on the boil since the extra- judicial murder of the top commander of Hizbul Mujahideen, Burhan Wani, by Indian troops on July 8.
80 people have been killed while hundreds of Kashmiris have been injured so far in the firing of bullets, pallets, and teargas shells on peaceful protesters by Indian troops and police personnel. Meanwhile, the occupation authorities continue to put Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Agha Syed Hassan Al- Moosvi Al-Safvi under house arrest or in police custody to prevent them from leading the demonstrations.
