Kashmiri youth’s mysterious death in India widely condemned

Srinagar, July 15, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, pro-freedom leaders have expressed shock and anger over the mysterious death of another Kashmiri youth in Mumbai.

Parvez Ahmad Teli, a trader from Qalamdanpora, in Nawab Bazar area of Srinagar was found dead in Mumbai. He went missing on July 7.

The veteran Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani in his statement termed it as the handiwork of Indian intelligence agencies or communal elements.

“There is a serious apprehension that he had been murdered by intelligence agencies or communal goons,” he added. “People in Kashmir greet visitors and Yatris with their unique hospitality but in return we continue to receive the coffins of our youth from India,” he said.

The All Parties Hurriyet Conference in a statement said that the Hurriyet had time and again raised alarm that Kashmiri students and traders working outside the territory were not safe. “Kashmiri traders and students have been murdered under mysterious condition in India before as well,” the statement added.

APHC leaders including Shabbir Ahmad Shah, Mohammad Yousuf Naqash and liberation leader Javed Ahmad Mir addressing a rally in Yari Pora area of Kulgam district condemned the murder of Parvez Teli and said that Kashmiris were not safe in India.

APHC leader, Zafar Akbar Butt who attended the funeral prayers of the victim in a statement said, “Kashmiri youth are being targeted in India as part of a conspiracy to suppress their pro-freedom sentiments.”

Kashmiri leader Sajjad Ghani Lone terming Teli’s death as shocking and cruel, demanded impartial probe into the callous murder.

President of Awami Ittihaad Party (AIP) and Independent member of so-called Kashmir Assembly, Engineer Abdur Rasheed said that the youth was “beaten to death in a mysterious incident by miscreants in Mumbai.”
