Jammu Kashmir completely shuts down after killings

SPO wounded in militant attack in south Kashmir

There were also demonstrations in Srinagar, where authorities ordered all schools shut on Monday as rebel groups called for protests.

They later opened fire.

"The government has also continuously encouraged policies to mainstream the youth, including providing employment opportunities to wean them away from militancy", he said.

The bill was tabled by PTI MPA Dr Nosheen Hamid on Sunday, denouncing the Indian oppression of Kashmiris for the past 70 years, Express News reported.

Twenty people were killed in India-held Kashmir in some of the fiercest clashes this year in the region on Sunday.

Villages in south Kashmir, particularly Shopian, Pulwama and Anantnag have become rebel hotbeds since July 2016, after the killing of young rebel commander Burhan Wani.

As the valley braced for more violence, Islamabad said yesterday that the mindless killing spree in the Indian-held Kashmir has exposed the ugly and inhuman face of New Delhi.

In a statement, the KCCI said, "armed forces knowing well the whereabouts of these militants chose a civilian as a human shield who reportedly later got killed".

He said despite India's continuous brutalities on the innocent civilians of the valley, they could not silence the Kashmiris, adding that the their rightful struggle for independence could not be called terrorism.

"It's unfortunate that stone pelting around encounter site cost 4 civilian deaths", Shesh Paul Vaid, the local police chief, tweeted Sunday about the "encounter". Train services between north Kashmir's Baramulla town and Bannihal town have been suspended.

Abbasi called on the global community to urge India to allow access to fact-finding missions to Jammu and Kashmir, mentioned the report.

The police detained a large group of Kashmiri traders in Srinagar as they began marching on the summer headquarters of the United Nations Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) in Srinagar from the City centre to protest against the civilian killings.

Pakistan - which has fought three wars with India over Kashmir - condemned the latest violence and said that brutal use of force will only fortify the resolve of the Kashmiri people for freedom. Rebels have been fighting against Indian rule since 1989.

DGP Vaid told reporters that the security forces began operations based on specific information about the presence of militants at three places in south Kashmir.

Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the end of British colonial rule in 1947, but both claim it in full.
