Hundreds of students in Kashmir University assembled near the Iqbal Library, Thursday to pay homage to Asia and Neelofar on their fifth death anniversary.
Two young women, Asia and Neelofar were found missing in mysterious conditions in their home town Shopian on May 30, 2009.
Earlier, on May 29, 2009, both the young women had gone missing after they left for their orchard.
According to locals and the victim family, Asia and Neelofar were allegedly kidnapped by the men in uniform who later killed them after raping.
However, the CBI probe into the Shopian tragedy concluded that the duo had died due to drowning in the Rambiara Nallah.
The students, including some girls as well displayed placards reading slogans like “War has just begun we will see through it”, “Forgetting is a luxury and oppressed cannot afford”.
The students while paying tributes to Asia and Neelofar said, “We cannot forget our sisters who lost their chastity and lives only because they belonged to an oppressed region.”
“First they raped our land, women and now they are raping our thoughts,” said one of the students addressing the protesters.
