Geelani Calls For Kashmir Bandh Tomorrow

26 July 2005

Srinagar: Rejecting the probe ordered by the Jammu and Kashmir government into the recent killing of three teenaged boys by army troops, Chairman of the hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference Syed Ali Shah Geelani today called for a Kashmir bandh tomorrow to protest the killings. He also appealed to the people to march towards Trehgam (Kupwara) on July 29 to register their protest against human rights violations in the state. 'Indian forces have unleashed a reign of terror and usurped all human rights of Kashmiris,' Geelani alleged accusing the Mufti Mohd Sayeed government of losing all control over the armed forces. 'The puppet government has not made public a single report of so many probes ordered in the past and their integrity is also doubtful,' the hardline leader alleged. 'The residents of the area were canecharged and tear gas shells lobbed at them, injuring scores of persons, for protesting the cold-blooded murder of the children,' he claimed.
