Kin of 'disappeared' Kashmiris demand justice

“The Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) firmly resolves to continue their struggle for truth, justice and accountability,” said a statement issued at the protest.

“In most cases, the perpetrators have been identified by the family members and cases against them are pending in the courts. We demand that an independent credible investigation should be initiated against these perpetrators," The statement said.

The protesters also demanded a probe into the recently released state human rights commission report on mass graves discovered in Kashmir.

Scores of locals, including children, have disappeared during the last 20 years of violence in the Valley.

The families are alleging that their loved ones were arrested by the security forces, but their arrests were later denied.
