It has become a routine that Indian Army and security forces kill Kashmiri youth in illegal confinement and extra judicial killings. Hundreds of Kashmir youth have been killed by the Indian occupying forces in disputed Jammu and Kashmir State by declaring them to be infected with COVID or their dead bodies are found in the forests. This time they Kashmiri youth were killed in extra judicial custody and thrown into the river. The United Nations Organization (UNO), European Union (EU) and Human Rights organizations must stop Indian from carrying out atrocities and target killings and genocide of Kashmir youth of those who demand their right of self determination under the UNSC Resolutions.
