A senior leader of Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Azad Jammu and Kashmir Mir Hafeezullah was martyred by disguised Indian occupational forces in Islamabad district, Radio Pakistan reported on Tuesday.
Occupational forces reportedly barged into Hafeezullah’s house in Achabal and opened indiscriminate fire, injuring him and his wife.
They were rushed to the nearby hospital where the doctors pronounced Hafeezullah dead.
The Foreign Office on Wednesday condemned the brutal killing of the Kashmiri leader along with continuing Indian atrocities in the Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Earlier, three other Hurriyat leaders, Muhammad Yousuf Nadeem, Hakeemur Rehman Sultani and Tariq Ahmed Ganai, had become victims of targeted killing by occupational forces since February this year.
Hurriyat leaders and organisations in their separate statements strongly condemned the target killing of Hafeezullah.
Indian troops in their fresh act of state terrorism also martyred four Kashmiri youth in Shopian district on Tuesday.
They were killed during a cordon and search operation in Nadigam area of the district.
The killing of youth triggered anti-India demonstrations in the area. Indian forces fired bullets, pellets and teargas shells on the protesters, injuring many of them including three women.
