Protests erupted in Ahgam, Shopian after forces allegedly beat up three youth without any provocation on Wednesday morning.

According to reports, a huge crowd took to streets against the army for beating up three youth identified as Mohammad Shafi Lone, Abdul Majeed Ganie and Bilal Ahmad.

“The trio were going towards their orchards when army caught them and beat them up without any provocation,” Mohammad Akram Lone, father of Mohammad Rafi Lone one among the youth who were beaten up by the army said.

“Now we are not even safe in our own localities and cannot visit our orchards,” he added.

Meanwhile, despite repeated attempts by The Kashmir Walla army spokesperson could not be contacted.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
