International media reports of firing on protesters are fabricated and motivated, not a single bullet fired: Jammu and Kashmir Police

Jammu and Kashmir police have denied reports by a section of international media claiming that Kashmir has seen violent protests against abrogation of Article 370. Since the last couple of days, some media houses like BBC, Al Jazira etc have been reporting that Srinagar and other places in Kashmir saw massive protests involving thousands of people, and police used force to combat them, including firing shots and tear gas shells.

But Jammu and Kashmir have categorically denied the reports, saying that no firing incident has taken place in Kashmir over the last 6 days, after the govt took the decision to abrogate Article 370 and Article 35A, and bifurcate the state into two union territories. The Chief Secretary and DGP of the state have requested people not to believe fabricated and motivated news.

They have said that people should not believe any mischievous and motivated news regarding firing incidents in the Kashmir valley. Saying that police have not fired a single bullet so far, the Jammu and Kashmir police state that the situation in the state is calm, people are cooperative and restrictions are being relaxed to ease the situation. The statement also states that Srinagar and other towns were full of traffic yesterday and people were busy with Eid shopping.

A video message was also posted by the SP Pani, IGP Kashmir, denying the international media reports about firing incidents. He said that no firing incident has taken place and the reports are wrong. He added that the valley has remained largely peaceful during the last week, and he urged the media agencies to act responsibly.
