Indian troops kill two attackers in Pampore IOK

Srinagar, October 12, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the authorities have claimed that Indian troops killed two attackers who were holed up in a government building of Entrepreneurship Development Institute at Sempora in Pampore on Srinagar-Jammu Highway.

The attackers were killed after Indian forces fired rockets and destroyed the building. A local police officer said that the troops used ammunition including several kilograms of IEDs and fired over 100 rockets at the building. The operation has been going on for the last 52 hours and most parts of the concrete building have been reduced to a skeleton after many of its walls have been blown up.

On the other hand, the occupation authorities have imposed curfew and other restrictions in all major towns by deploying Indian troops and police personnel in strength to thwart Muharram processions and anti-India demonstrations on the 96th consecutive day, today. Life across the valley is paralysed as main markets, public transport and other businesses are closed.

All the roads leading to Lal Chowk in Srinagar are sealed and army vehicles have been placed at every major point. Indian paramilitary forces and police personnel are not allowing anyone to enter the city centre.
