PoK: Police arrests activists protesting against hydro-power plants

Muzaffarabad (PoK), Jun 16 (ANI): Police has arrested at least 60 protesters and manhandled activists who have been protesting in Muzaffarabad city of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). A large number of protesters blocked the highway demanding Islamabad to stop building hydro power projects on Neelum and Jhelum rivers as it will result in diverting the water and affecting normal life for residents. The residents in Muzaffarabad have been on sit-in protest for over two months but the authorities and government have failed to listen to their demands. Later, shops and businesses have been shut down in protest over police action on protesters. The Kashmiri diaspora has announced a protest outside the Pakistan High Commission in London on June 18.
