Four more Kashmiri youth martyred as Indian brutality continues
SRINAGAR - In a fresh act of state terrorism in Indian occupied Kashmir Indian troops martyred four more Kashmiri youth on Monday.

According to Kashmir Media Service, Indian troops killed the youth during a violent military operation in Keran area of Kupwara district.

It is worth mentioning here that Indian forces had killed at least eight youth including two teenage boys and injured around 200 when they opened fire on demonstrators protesting against the holding of sham Indian parliamentary elections in Badgam, Srinagar and Gandarbal districts on Sunday.

However, the poll drama totally flopped with turnout remaining below six as per official figures.

Meanwhile, internet services will continue to remain suspended in the entire Kashmir valley till April 12, officials told newsmen.

Kashmir has been in a phase of unrest since last year when Indian security forces killed Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

The violence since then, largely in the form of troops firing on civilian crowds with shotguns after protesters throw stones, has left over 100 civilians dead and more than 12,000 civilians and security force personnel wounded.
