JK Bank

After a joint team of Jammu and Kashmir Police, CRPF and Army, on December 28, started an encounter in the Bubgam village of Pulwama district (in Kashmir) and claimed killing of the two local militants of the Lashkar-e-Toiba outfit, they opened indiscriminate firing on the protesters too, as per the locals, which resulted in injuring at least 15 civilians badly. The incident was followed by massive protests and the authorities clamped curfew in the district town and some of its adjoining villages. Later, the Government ordered a magisterial probe into the incident.  Locals told a local newspaper that the people in large numbers from Chandgam and its adjoining villages raised anti-India and pro-freedom slogans and tried to move towards the encounter site peacefully. “However they were stopped by police and the paramilitary forces who fired indiscriminately on the protesters,” the newspaper quoted locals. Shahid Tantray brings pictures of some of the injured civilians being treated at the SMHS hospital.

  1. As expected, Kashmirwalla is conveniently silent about the two terror operatives armed to teeth who were waiting with bloodthirsty designs. He also ignores the fact that the ‘protests’ were in support of these murderous beasts.

    Never mind. People have eyes and ears. You can continue with your white lies and become laughing stock of the whole India, if not the world.

    Lage Raho, Kashmirwalla!

    Wish I got paid for this! Like you guys are paid by Pakistan!

    I am just an ordinary person who happens to know a little more about J&K than many other people on the internet. By the way, I have noted that you have avoided engaging with my views and have attacked my credibility instead. A sure sign of ulterior motives!

    Lage Raho, Jihadi Bhai!
