Kashmiri youths surrounded the military jeeps after which the occupying army personnel escaped. During the protest, the atmosphere resounded with slogans of freedom.
During the protest, a young man was shot dead by the Indian Army in Pulwama district. Clashes also broke out between Indian forces and protesters in several areas. Indian officials opened fire on protesters, injuring dozens.
On the other hand, the canopy set up in his village to offer condolences to Riaz Naiko was also torn down and the residents of the village were also prevented from offering condolences to the family of the martyr.
It should be noted that the occupying Indian army, fearing a large number of people attending the funeral of Riaz Naiko, instead of handing over the bodies of Riaz Naiko and other martyrs to their families, they were secretly buried in the Indian Army-run cemetery. ۔
The All Parties Hurriyat Conference has decided to continue anti-India demonstrations and protests in occupied Kashmir.
