Srinagar, Apr 10 (KNS): Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) staged a protest outside Indian High Commission in London on Monday against the ‘brutalities’ of Indian forces in Jammu Kashmir and particularly against barbaric and unlawful killings in south Kashmir district of Shopian, where more than two dozen innocent people were killed and over two hundred people seriously injured, a spokesman said.
In a statement issued to KNS, the JKLF spokesman said that hundreds of protesters including women and children chanted slogans for complete freedom of Jammu Kashmir and withdrawal of occupying forces from the state.
Protestors demanded from the international community to intervene and save lives of innocent people of Jammu Kashmir, and help secure justice for victims of Shopian massacre.

At the end of the protest, a delegation led by JKLF UK president Sabir Gul and prominent leaders tried to hand a memorandum to Indian High Commissioner, who refused to accept it.
