Police foils AIP’s UN march against Pulwama killings
Er. Rasheed, several others detained
Srinagar 16 December: Police today foiled AIP’s march towards UN Offices in Sonawar against Pulwama killings and detained dozens along with Er. Rasheed.
Protesters carrying banners and black flags started march from Rajbagh and proceeded towards Lal Chowk. However a large contingent of police stopped the procession near Zero Bridge and took Er. Rasheed and other party activists into custody and lodged them in police station Rajbagh. Protesters were chanting slogans against security forces and seeking implementation of UN resolutions to end bloodshed.
Before his arrest Er. Rasheed while talking to media condemned the killings and said that world community should take notice of massacres taking place in Kashmir.
He said, “It is obvious that New Delhi has no resolution to Kashmir dispute except pellets, bullets, massacres, draconian laws and state terrorism. Governor Satpal Malik, State DGP and Army Chief must own the moral responsibility of the killings rather making fake enquires and condemnations. New Delhi must stop enjoying killings of Kashmiris and driving entertainment from massacres of innocent Kashmiris.”
A spokesman of AIP in the evening said Er Rasheed was shifted to sub jail Kothibagh under judicial custody.
