RINAGAR – In Indian Occupied Kashmir, at least five people including a nine-year-old girl were injured in an attack by Hindu fanatics in Reasi district.
The incident took place when a nomad family was moving with their livestock near Talwara area. They were intercepted by a large group of Hindu extremists and beaten up with iron rods.
“They beat us ruthlessly. Somehow we managed to flee from there. One of our children, a 10-year-old, is still missing. We don’t know whether he is alive or dead. They even beat our elders very badly. They wanted to kill us and throw our bodies into the river,” said Naseem Begam, one of the victims.
The injured persons, including 9-year-old Sammi who has suffered multiple fractures, have been shifted to the hospital.
The police said they have filed an FIR and action will be taken against the attackers. “We have registered an FIR. I have asked DIG of Udhampur range to visit the area. Strict action will be taken against these goons,” said Jammu and Kashmir police chief SP Vaid.
Police in Reasi said they have identified five of the attackers but no one has been arrested so far.
