Pakistan PM dismayed over Shopian killings, condemns use of pellet guns on civilians

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Monday expressed his dismay over the killings in south Kashmir’s Shopian district.

Abbasi, according to Geo News, said: “Indian attempts to label the legitimate Kashmir struggle as terrorism cannot deter the valiant people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand of exercising their right to self-determination in accordance with UN resolutions”.

Abbasi called on the international community to urge India to allow access to fact-finding missions to Jammu and Kashmir, mentioned the report.

The premier, according to Radio Pakistan, said the “brutal crackdown”, including the use of pellet guns on civilians who were protesting against the killings, is deplorable.

Pakistan PM also lamented at Indian authorities for “stifling voices” from the region by shutting down the Internet.

13 militants, four civilians and three soldiers were killed during three gunfights in Shopian and Anantnag districts yesterday. Over 100 people were injured in the clashes.
