Pak accuses India of launching brutal crackdown in Kashmir

The brutal crackdown, including the despicable use of pellet guns on civilians who were protesting against the killing is deplorable, Abbasi said

Islamabad:  Pakistan today accused India of carrying out a “brutal crackdown” on protesters in Kashmir and said the Indian security forces are “deliberately and systematically” targeting them.

The Foreign Office (FO) in a statement said, “There were reports of continuing brutal crackdown especially the use of pellet guns on protestors and the suspension of Internet services, in an attempt to subjugate and further repress the innocent Kashmiris.”

“We have repeatedly pointed out that Kashmiri youths are being deliberately and systematically targeted with a view to breaking the will of the Kashmiri people,” the statement said.

The Foreign Office’s statement came as terror groups in Kashmir suffered a major setback after 11 terrorists were gunned down in counter-insurgency operations in three different areas in South Kashmir in which three Army jawans and two civilians were also killed.

In a late-night statement, Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has also accused India of launching a brutal crackdown in Kashmir after terror groups suffered a major setback following the killing of 13 terrorists in counter-insurgency operations.

“The brutal crackdown, including the despicable use of pellet guns on civilians who were protesting against the killing, is deplorable,” Abbasi said.

He also asked the international community to urge India to allow access to fact-finding missions of the UN to Kashmir.

Yesterday’s operations by the Indian security forces have rendered a severe blow to terror groups such as the Hizbul Mujahideen and the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
