Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday condemned the 'cycle of killings' in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) by occupying forces.

The statement by the prime minister comes a day after Indian occupying forces martyred eight youths in the valley. Soon after the deaths, the authorities suspended internet services and imposed curfew-like restrictions in the district.

"It is time India realised it must move to resolve the Kashmir dispute through dialogue in accordance with the UN SC resolutions & the wishes of the Kashmiri people," said the premier.

Earlier in October, the region's joint resistance leadership observed a complete shutdown to protest local government polls.
