May 18, 2019

Srinagar, May 18, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities continue to clamp curfew in Bhaderwah town of Doda district of Jammu region for the third consecutive day, today. The curfew was imposed in the town following massive protests against the cold-blooded murder of a Muslim, Nayeem Ahmed Shah, by Hindu extremists on Wednesday night.

On the fateful night, a group of three persons was heading towards their native Mohalla Qilla area of Bhaderwah along with their cattle when they were fired upon at 2 am by cow vigilantes near Nalti village. In the attack, an elderly Muslim Nayeem Ahmad Shah was killed on spot while his associates managed to escape with minor injuries.

Following the killing of Nayeem, massive protests erupted in the area with protesters demanding immediate arrest of the culprits. Indian police had resorted to brute force to disperse the protesters, triggering clashes, prompting the authorities to impose curfew in the town.
