Srinagar, November 09 : In occupied Kashmir, forceful anti-India demonstrations continued in different areas of Srinagar city on the third consecutive day, today, against the cold-blooded murder of a student, Gowhar Ahmed Dar, by Indian troops.

People took to the streets in Nowhatta, Kawdara, Rajouri Kadal, Gojwara, Narabal and other localities and clashed with the troops and police personnel deployed in strength to prevent demonstrations against the brutal killing. They raised high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans. The forces’ personnel resorted to brute force and fired teargas shells to disperse the protesters, injuring many people. Clashes between the protesters and police were going on till last reports came in. Complete shutdown was observed in old city areas.

The students of Kashmir University held demonstrations at the campus to register their protest against the gruesome killing of Gowhar Dar. They marched through different departments, raising slogans in favour of freedom and against India.On the other hand, the grandmother of martyred Gowhar died, last evening, due to the shock she received after his murder. She fainted and was shifted to a hospital where she breathed her last.

Meanwhile, the occupation authorities continued to detain Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Aasiya Andrabi, Fareeda Bahenji, Nayeem Ahmed Khan, Mohammad Yousuf Naqash, Syed Bashir Andrabi, Bilal Siddiqi, Mushtaq-ul-Islam, Ghulam Nabi Sumjhi, Ghulam Mohammad Khan Sopori, Zafar Akbar Butt, Javaid Ahmad Mir, Hilal Ahmad War and Mukhtar Ahmad Waza.
