India to ‘further brutalise Kashmiris’ with more troops in IIOJK | The Express Tribune

Pakistan is deeply concerned over the recent deployment of additional 5,500 occupation troops in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK), the Foreign Office said in a statement on Thursday.

“Around 2,500 troops have arrived and they were deployed all over the valley,” Abhiram Pankaj, a spokesperson for the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), told AFP on Wednesday.

More were on their way to the occupied territory, he added.

Around 5,000 extra paramilitaries in all were being deployed from this week, including from India’s Border Security Force (BSF), according to a police officer speaking to AFP on condition of anonymity.

Indian occupation forces have unleashed unimaginable brutalities on the Kashmiris including inter-alia the use of pellet guns, extrajudicial killings in ‘fake encounters’, enforced disappearances, arbitrary detentions, torture and custodial deaths.

Pakistan has already shared with the international community a comprehensive Dossier documenting Indian state terrorism, widespread violations of human rights, war crimes and crimes against humanity in IIOJK.

The deployment of these additional troops in IIOJK – the world’s most militarised region with over 900,000 occupation forces already – will further brutalise the oppressed Kashmiri people, the communiqué added.

“Equally reprehensible is the housing of Indian occupation forces in community centres, erection of additional bunkers in cities and daily aggressive and humiliating frisking of Kashmiri men and women,” the FO said.

Pakistan once again called upon India to halt its barbarism and state-sponsored terrorism in the IIOJK, immediately cease human rights violations, lift the inhuman military siege and let the people of IIOJK exercise their right to self-determination as enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, read the statement.
