Three-year-old boy survives after his grandfather killed by Indian troops in Jammu Kashmir

  • Images circulating on social media showed the child was sitting on the blood-splattered body of his grandfather
Updated 01 Jul 2020

(Karachi) A three-year-old boy survived as his grandfather was martyred in front of him by Indian forces in Jammu and Kashmir's Sopore area, media reported on Wednesday.

The child was travelling in a car with his grandfather from Srinagar to Handwara when the Indian soldiers flagged down the vehicle and ordered the child's grandfather to step out. As the man came out of the vehicle, the Indian troops opened fire, killing him on the spot.

In heart-wrenching images that circulated on social media and TV channels, the child is seen sitting on the blood-splattered body of his grandfather. The boy was numb with fear when he was picked up by Indian troops.

Indian soldiers also stepped on the body of the victim after killing him.

Earlier, in a fresh act of state terrorism, Indian troops martyred two more Kashmiri youth during a cordon and search operation in Anantnag Islamabad district.

Indian authorities suspended mobile internet services and sealed all entry and exit points in the area. India has been involved in killing and torturing innocent people of Kashmir and promoting the BJP-RSS agenda in the region.

In wake of human rights abuses in Jammu Kashmir by Indian forces, Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has called on UN Human Rights Council to equitably address human rights violations of people in conflict situations that are on UN and the OIC agenda, including Kashmir issue.

The people of Kashmir have been living under curfew-like conditions for over two months now.

Normal life remains crippled in the occupied valley as military lockdown has cost the territory’s economy more than Rs200 billion over the past two months.

Amid continued military siege, internet and mobile phone services are shut down, public transport is off the roads, and business establishments are shut while schools and offices continue to wear a deserted look.

The lockdown has rendered more than 50,000 workers jobless in the carpet industry alone. There is also a shortage of skilled labour in occupied Kashmir, as some 400,000 migrants have left since India imposed undeclared martial law in occupied Kashmir on August 5.
