He went on to note that the protests come a week after the Indian armed forces “killed at least six people in two different encounters while using some of them as human shields.”
According to the Kashmir Zonal Police Twitter account, three “terrorists” have been neutralized in Rambagh although their identification and affiliation have yet to be established, he said.
“Unlike the police version, eyewitnesses say they were all unarmed and were thrown out of a car and shot dead in broad daylight,” protesters said.
Students also spoke about the Hyderpora incident, in which police said they killed an individual associated with the terrorist and two others, while their distraught families claimed otherwise.
Holding signs and waving slogans on Sunday, the students said, “Recognize, respect and restore the dignity of life to Kashmiris. Stop the arbitrary killings and bloodshed of the Kashmiri people. Free political prisoners and human rights defenders, including Khurram Parvez. “
They also called on the Indian government to “respect the right to self-determination of the Kashmiri people and allow them to exercise it”.
The assembly then observed a silence of 7 minutes.
