“The government is not doing anything for them to trace their missing loved one,” said an elderly woman.” Adding that as per estimates of the APDP, over 10000 people have been disappeared in Kashmir since the inception of armed struggle in Kashmir.

Meanwhile, the APDP also demanded the strict action against the people who raped and murdered an 8-year-old girl Asifa Banoo, a resident of Hiranagar Kathua.
