IOK rights body moved against Tosamaidan lease extension
Srinagar, August 06 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Human Rights Commission has been moved against possible extension to the lease of Tosamaidan pasture in favour of the Indian Army.
The petition has been filed by a delegation of RTI activists lead by Dr Raja Muzaffar Butt, said a local news agency.
The petition suggests that the firing range should be shifted from Tosmaidan meadow to an uninhabited area in Ladakh.
The authorities “may be directed not to extend the lease of the area in favour of India through Ministry of Defence as the life and property of the local residents is at stake,” the petitioner demands.
