Srinagar: In Occupied Kashmir, the chief commander of Hizbul Mujahideen Riyaz Naikoo has been martyred along with his associate Aadil Ahmed during a cordon and search operation by Indian troops in Pulwama district, today.
According to Kashmir Media Service, Riyaz Naikoo had taken over as the commander of Hizbul Mujahideen after popular young commander Burhan Wani was killed by Indian troops in a fake encounter in Kokarnag area of Islamabad district on July 8, 2016.
In the wake of the killing of Riyaz Naikoo and Aadil Ahmad, the authorities suspended mobile internet services in the entire occupied territory and imposed curfew-like restrictions. Earlier, the troops martyred another two youth in Sharshali area of the district raising the toll to four in one day. People took to the streets at different places in Pulwama district to pretest the killing of Riyaz Naikoo and other youth. Many people were injured when the Indian troops and police resorted to brute force to quell the protests.

The APHC also called for general strike in the occupied territory, tomorrow, against the killings.
