CASO policy aimed at silencing people: JKDFP

Denounces Fayaz Wani’s killing in Pulwama


Srinagar, Sep 04 (KNS): Strongly condemning the cordon and search operation (CASO) policy which leads to civilian deaths, Jammu Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party (JKDFP) has strongly denounced the killing of Fayaz Ahmad Wani of Chewa Kalan Pulwama in government forces action.
A JKDFP Spokesperson said in a statement issued to KNS that CASOs is the main reason for civilian killings as government forces always go berserk during such operations. Since the government forces are not held accountable for their actions that have encouraged them enough to thrash people, damage their properties and even violate their basic rights. This leads to reaction from the civilian population and the trigger happy forces use force against unarmed people resulting in casualties.
The JKDFP strongly condemned the CASO in more than a dozen villages of south Kashmir and said that such operations are aimed at intimidating people so that they could not raise their voice in favour of their political rights.
The JKDFP spokesperson said that on one hand, people are deprived of the basic fundamental rights in presence of lakhs of government forces and on the other hand a reign of terror is unleashed on the people through harassments and unjustified persecution. Strongly condemning the acts of violence against the common masses in nook and corner of the disputed region, the spokesperson said that efforts are afoot to crush the genuine dissent through military might.
He castigated the authorities for unleashing terror on the common people in the garb of search operations by resorting to thrashing residents including senior citizens and even women, vandalizing the goods and damaging other properties like vehicles. (KNS)
