Kulgam (Jammu and Kashmir), July 15 (ANI): At least one policeman was killed in a separate terrorist attack on a police station in Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday. Earlier today, in another incident, as many as four policemen were injured after terrorists attacked another police station in Kulgam. The two separate terrorist attacks on the police stations come at a time when the valley is witnessing protests following Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani's killing earlier on July 8. At least 37 people have died in the protests following Wani's killing last week. Meanwhile, the separatists groups today decided to extend their strike call in the valley for three more days. India has slammed Pakistan for glorifying terrorists and also for declaring Wani a martyr. MEA official spokesperson Vikas Swarup earlier today said India completely and unequivocally rejects in the entirety the decisions adopted by the Cabinet of Pakistan on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir. On the call of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the Federal Cabinet earlier today decided that the country will observe July 19 as 'Black Day' against the Indian "barbarism in the Kashmir Valley." Prime Minister Sharif said that Pakistan will continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support for Kashmiris in their just struggle for "right to self-determination." He added the "Indian brutalities" will give impetus to the freedom struggle, which even the seven hundred thousand Indian soldiers deployed in the Indian side of Kashmir could not suppress. He went on to call the 22-year-old Hizbul Mujahideen leader Burhan Wani as "martyr" of the independence movement. (ANI)
