Islamabad, January 05, 2021 (PPI-OT): Pakistan has strongly condemned the latest extra-judicial killing of three Kashmiri youth by Indian troops in Srinagar on 29 December last year. In a statement, Foreign Office Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said the families and neighbours of the martyred Kashmiris have affirmed that the young boys were innocent, who visited Srinagar on the fateful day and became victims of Indian state terrorism.

He said it is doubly inhuman that the bodies of the three martyrs are not handed over to their families for a proper burial, despite repeated appeals by the families. The Spokesperson said this is a new form of oppression that the Indian occupational forces are now resorting to in order to break the will of the Kashmiri people. They will never succeed in this attempt, he added.

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said Pakistan reiterates its call for an independent inquiry under international scrutiny to investigate the extra-judicial killings of Kashmiris by Indian occupational forces in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir and to bring the perpetrators of these heinous crimes to book.
