NEW DELHI: Indian security forces have launched the biggest crackdown in more than two decades in occupied Kashmir and arrested more than 7000 people since the killing of freedom fighter Burhan Wani on July 08.
According to India media, the occupation forces are struggling to contain the protests in the Valley even after 90 days of lock down, the longest in Kashmir’s history.
Since the killing freedom fighter Burhan Wani, India police have arrested close to 7000 people in the valley while more than 450 people have been booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), the highest number-ever in the Valley.
Sources in the IoK police say that in addition to these figures, 1500 others are under detention in different police stations without any charges and their detention doesn’t reflect in the official records.
According to official figures of the state government, a total of 446 people have been arrested across Jammu and Kashmir in a week.
The highest number of arrests have been made in Srinagar where more than a thousand people have been arrested and 129 put under preventive detention.
More than 100 innocent Kashmiris have been martyred and 10,000 injured in clashes between Indian security forces and protesters since Burhan Wani killing in July.
