Srinagar, November 21, 2018 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Chairman of All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that Indian secret agencies have started executing their plan to eliminate resistance leadership. Syed Ali Gilani addressing a press conference in Srinagar strongly denounced the targeted killing of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat leader, Mir Hafeezullah, by Indian troops in disguise in Achabal area of Islamabad district, yesterday. He said, it seems the kill list prepared by the government of India and its agencies in 2016, which included names of Hurriyat activists, traders, intellectuals and journalists, is being implemented now. He said, the way Indian army-backed Ikhwan and other militias selectively targeted members of Jamaat-e-Islami in the past, the same pattern is now being followed to eliminate the leaders of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat.
