458 Indian troops and police personnel committed suicides in IOJK
As many as 458 Indian troops and police personnel have committed suicides in occupied Kashmir since January 2007 till date.
Statistics shows the level of frustration remain very high among the Indian soldiers.
Many see they have to do so due to posting for longer period in the occupied territory away from family, denial of leaves and insulting behaviour of officers .
The guilt of killing, arresting, torturing and committing other atrocities on innocent Kashmiris without any reason also leaves deep impacts on the psychology of the Indian forces’ personnel.
Therefore, heightened frustration is resulting in the increasing incidents of suicides and fratricide among Indian soldiers in occupied Kashmir.
Meanwhile, All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) has called for a complete strike on Friday.
The APHC spokesman said they want to send a clear message to India and world at large that Kashmiri people reject New Delhi’s illegal occupation of their homeland.
In a statement in Srinagar, he said India is following policy of Israel to change territorial integrity and demographic composition of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said that people from across the held territory especially living near military camps have been complaining that they are being forcibly evicted from their lands.
