#Day 26: Kulgam Rally Intercepted, Clashes Erupt



Police and CRPF men intercepted mass public rally in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district on Wednesday.

Local reports said that hundreds of people from Kulgam villages were on way to Damhal Hanji Pora for a mass rally.

Unlike past few days, majority of people were on foot walking towards Damhal Hanji Pora. People held mass rallies in South Kashmir parts in which people showed unity in file and ranks and vowed to “take forward the freedom movement”.

Today, reports said, the rally which comprised of bikes and cars as well was intercepted at Aadijan Laisu village in a brook by police and CRPF personnel.

“Intense pro-freedom is going on while intense clashes erupted,” reports said.

Damhal Hanji Pora witnessed large scale violence immediately after popular militant commander Burhan Wani was killed on July 08, 2016 evening. Two youths including a teenage girl were killed by forces and a local police station was burnt down by protestors.

Kashmir is witnessing a renewed uprising since July 09, 2016 as mass protests erupted after Burhan’s death.
