Killing of Sikh youth handiwork of Indian agencies: UJC

Srinagar: United Jihad Council (UJC) has termed the killing of a Sikh youth in south Kashmir’s Tral on Friday as handiwork of Indian agencies.

UJC general secretary and Tehreek-ul-Mujahideen chief Sheikh Jameel-ur-Rehman in a statement issued to GNS said the “Indian conspiracies” against the Kashmir freedom movement will, as always, fail.

He said India has in past used the unknown gunmen to create divisions and infighting in the Kashmiri society but failed in crushing the movement as the people are mature enough to understand New Delhi’s designs.

Jameel-ur-Rehman also said that the “men in uniform” responsible for the Chhatisinghpora Massacre are still roaming free even after 19 years. “They were even rewarded and promoted,” he said.

UJC general secretary said the sacrifices of Sikh brethren are unforgettable.

“The truth will come out only if the international rights bodies will investigate the massacres in Kashmir,” Sheikh Jameel-ur-Rehman said. (GNS)
