A youth was killed and two others injured when Indian security forces opened fire at a demonstration in Kulgam district of Kashmir valley on Saturday, July 20.
Hundreds of people assembled in Khudwani, a town in south Kashmir’s Kulgam district, to protest against Israeli bombardment of Gaza, which has killed scores of children so far.
Security forces fired teargas shells and then opened fire to disperse the protesters, injuring three of them critically. The youth has been identified as Suhail Ahmad Lone (16), son of Ghulam Qadir Lone of Khudwani in Kulgam.
Lok Raj Sangathan joins all political forces and Kashmir and rest of India in condemning this killing and the violation of rights of Kashmir people to voice their opposition to injustice.
