In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, brutal torture techniques employed by Indian troops have left thousands of Kashmiris disabled for life including 139 losing eyesight in the firing of pellets on peaceful protesters in the territory.
An analytical report released by Kashmir Media Service in connection with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, today (Thursday), said, among the most brutal tactics used by Indian troops to disable Kashmiris include firing of bullets, pellets, and teargas shells during anti-India protests as well as resorting to severe beatings, electric shock, crushing the leg muscles with a wooden roller.
Besides, bobby traps and mine blasts are also used against the hapless Kashmiris.
Cases of disabilities have increased manifold since New Delhi started using deadly pellets as over three thousand Kashmiris are at the verge of losing vision in one or both eyes.
The report urged the international community to take notice of Indian government’s inhuman act of disabling Kashmiris under a systematic torture mechanism in IIOJK.
Indian troops during violent cordon and search operations threatened and harassed people and ransacked properties in Khanyar and other areas of Srinagar.
The troops also launched violent cordon and search operations in Pulwama, Baramulla, Kupwara, Bandipore, Shopian, Islamabad and Kulgam districts.
In continuation of setbacks to Indian Army in IIOJK, two more soldiers committed suicide, today.
These incidents raised the number of such deaths to 483 since January 2007.
