Masked armed men terrorise Muslims in Jammu region
Srinagar, August 05 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, suspicious armed masked men have let loose a reign of terror in Muslim populated areas of Jammu region terrorising the people. People of the area told media men that unknown armed masked men knock at the doors of people during Sehri and night prayers and threaten them.
“Masked men have been appearing in Kishtwar, Bhadarwah and Doda districts. Muslim populated areas are being terrorized by these suspicious masked men,” residents of Thatri Tehsil told media men. They maintained that for past one week the unknown masked men were continuously appearing in scores of hamlets including Zanri, Jangalwar, Faksu, Khanpora, Trinkli, Kahra, Kencha, Bhatyas, Bonjah, Saroor and Drabshalla.
Media reports said that these unknown masked men knock at the doors and create fearful sounds. “ A few masked men some days ago entered a house when people were busy in offering Isha prayers and they tried to kidnap a child from there, however, the alarm raised by the women forced them to flee from the village,” one of the residents said.
Another resident said that the motive of the masked men was to terrorise the people. “We are surprised why these masked men appear in Muslim areas only,” he added. The locals deplored that the police were not taking any action against the masked men.
