According to the locals in Samboora Village of Pulwama district of South Kashmir a group of youth have been taken as human shields by the government forces during an on going Cordon and Search Operation.

In a video, sent by a local from the areas, a group of youth can be seen sitting in front of the forces’ vehicle to stop other youth from throwing stones.

An eyewitness from the spot told The Kashmir Walla over phone that the CASO is still going on and the forces are not allowing anyone to move ahead. “If youth are trying to throw stones at the forces, they beat up the boys who are held infront of the vehicles,” he added.


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.
