Indian Army personnel booked by J&K police for deaths in Shopian firing

Youth killed in Army firing

They alleged the Army, CRPF and Police are hell bent upon "killing our youth in a well knit plan, irrespective of them being armed or unarmed". Restrictions were imposed in parts of Srinagar.

Meanwhile, train service has been resumed today after remaining suspended for security reasons yesterday, when separatists had called for a general strike against Shopian killings.

On Sunday, shops and other businesses were closed, and public transport stayed off roads.

Tension continued to prevail in the entire Valley.

"Injured persons were shifted to nearby hospital for advanced treatment". Two of them later succumbed to injuries at Pulwama and Rajpora villages while the third youngster was shifted to Sher-e-Kashmir institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) in Srinagar in a critical condition.

The Jammu and Kashmir police on Sunday booked an Army major and his associates on charges of murder, attempt to murder and endangering life in Saturday's shooting incident in a remote village of southern Shopian district.

Considering the "extreme gravity" of the situation, he said, "The army was constrained to open fire in self-defence to prevent the lynching of the JCO and burning of government vehicle by the mob".

"Deaths along the border with Pakistan in Jammu and deaths in Kashmir in the first month". I can only pray that the rest of the year doesn't go this way.

Locals started fresh protests after the security personnel resorted to firing at the civilians.

Police said due to stone-pelting some Army soldiers sustained injuries.

"Unless and until action is initiated and responsibilities fixed against the involved personnel things won't improve". Blaming the present regime for the mess, Vakil, said that Government of India seems to be in complete dormancy and deep slumber on the issue as it has failed to take remedial measures to save precious lives.
