SRINAGAR – Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism have killed three more youth in Pulwama district of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir region.

The Indian forces targeted the youth during a cordon and search operation at Rajpora in Tral area.

Meanwhile, life in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region continues to remain disturbed for the 80th consecutive day amid unprecedented Indian military lockdown.

On Wednesday, people continue to observe complete shutdown as a mark of silent protest against the Indian occupation and revocation of the territory’s special status, the Kashmir Media Service reported.

Shops and businesses establishments remain closed for most of the time except for few hours in the morning and evening while public transport is off the roads. Government offices and educational institutions were open but almost no one turned up.

Although the authorities have restored landline and some postpaid cellular connections but a total ban remains enforced on the internet and prepaid mobile phones. Being unable to speak with their loved ones, millions of people are suffering emotionally and psychologically as a direct result of the continuing siege.

Local newspapers have been reduced to few pages and they couldn’t update their online editions since the 5th of August because of the gag on internet.
