Pakistan strongly condemns extra-judicial killing of 3 Kashmiris by Indian forces


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan has strongly condemned the extra-judicial killing of three Kashmiris including a 14-year old juvenile and a student of 10th grade by the Indian forces in a so-called “cordon-and-search” operation in Shopian area of Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

In a statement on Monday, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that the further intensification of “fake encounters” is a matter of grave concern.

The Spokesperson said that the extra-judicial killings of young men including teenage boys, and refusal to return human remains of those martyred is completely unlawful and reflects the moral bankruptcy of the Indian Occupation forces.

Chaudhri said that Pakistan has repeatedly called for independent investigations, under international scrutiny, into the extra-judicial killings of all innocent Kashmiris.

“We call upon the international community to hold India accountable for the gross and systematic human rights violations in IIOJK and work for peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people,” the Foreign Office Spokesperson said.
