ISLAMABAD    -  Pakistan has strongly condemned the continued campaign of extrajudicial killings by Indian occupation forces in Indian Illegally Occu­pied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK). “It is deeply wor­rying that in the past one week, Indian forces have blatantly carried out a series of extra-judicial murders with impunity on a daily basis,” foreign office spokesman Asim If­tikhar said in a statement. “In one incident near Kupwara on September 25, two innocent Kash­miris were mercilessly killed by Indian occupa­tion forces. In another brutal encounter that oc­curred after a so-called ‘cordon and search’ op­eration in Kulgam district on September 26, one more innocent Kashmiri was killed in cold blood,” spokesman said. He said in yet another incident that took place in Kulgam district on September 27, two more innocent Kash­miris were shot dead un­der the facade of a police encounter. The spokes­man said even yesterday, two innocent Kashmiris were targeted and killed in a staged encounter in Baramulla and the stage-managed encounters enacted after every so-called ‘cordon and search’ operation and resulting in the extra-judicial killings of Kashmiris, openly des­ecrate the basic tenets of law and justice and defy the fundamental human rights and liberties of the innocent Kashmiri people. The spokesman said since its unilateral and illegal actions of August 5, 2019, Indian Occupation Forces have murdered more than 678 Kashmiris, includ­ing at least 158 this year. “Pakistan reiterates its call for the investigation of extra-judicial killings in IIOJK by the Commis­sion of Inquiry as recom­mended by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in its Kashmir Reports of 2018 and 2019”, he demanded. He also urged the interna­tional community to hold India responsible for its brazen persecution of the innocent Kashmiris and play its due role in ensur­ing a peaceful resolution of the dispute
