Pakistan foreign office spokesperson, Nafees Zakaria on Thursday said that Pakistan is deeply saddened, shocked and condemned the continued “bloodshed of innocent and defenceless Kashmiris in Jammu and Kashmir”.
“To suppress the Kashmiris’ right to self-determination, India is using brute force and has embarked on a killing spree of Kashmiris,” he said during weekly press briefing.
Referring to the Wednesday’s civilian killing near the encounter site in Chadoora, he said, “They martyred 4 Kashmiris, including 3 teenagers and injured scores. In a most despicable act, the Indian forces even opened live ammunition fire on those offering funeral prayers of the martyred.”
“This all happened at a time when the OIC’s Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) was visiting AJK to gather personal account of those Kashmiris who suffered from Indian brutalities in IOK. Members of IPHRC have taken note of the grave situation of human rights violations in IOK,” Zakaria said.
