SRINAGAR

 Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) Saturday staged a peaceful and silent protest against Army decision to close Pathribal fake encounter case. Scores of APDP activists led by Parvena Ahangar assembled in Press Enclave Srinagar carrying banners and placards.

The protestors termed the Army decision as murder of justice and as a mark of protest they had wrapped their mouths with pieces of clothes.

Talking to reporters, APDP chairperson, Parvena Ahangar said that Army decision has not come as a surprise to the people of Kashmir as generations  of Kashmiris have been witness to extra judicial killings, torture, rape, enforced disappearances, molestation, humiliations and other heinous violations at the hands of the Indian soldiers and their collaborators.

 She said that not a single Indian soldier has so far been convicted for the crimes they committed in Kashmir only reflects that the tall claims of justice and reparation made by the Indian state and its collaborators are nothing but a tactics to hood-wink the international community and an attempt to cover-up India’s crime against humanity in Kashmir.

APDP said that Pathribal Fake Encounter Case was very unique as it attracted media attention and was indeed an exception among thousands of incidents of human rights abuses which never get reported.
