Scores of the men and women associated with APDP holding banners and placards demanded to trace out their kin who have been subjected to “enforced” disappearances in Kashmir.


The association registers their protests on 10th of every month to put forth their demands.

Parveena Ahanger-founder and Chairperson of APDP in Jammu and Kashmir said, “ The government has failed to give us justice and castigated the successive governments for being biased towards their pain and agony.”

She also hailed the UN Office of the High Commission for Human Rights on Jammu and Kashmir for its an annual report on the “atrocities” done on Kashmiris.

The chairperson said that they don’t want anything else from the government, they only want their dear ones back.

The family members of the disappeared person alleged that the government has failed to conduct an investigation in cases of enforced disappearances.
