Scores of the men and women associated with the Srinagar Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) on Monday staged a sit-in protest at Partap Park in Srinagar demanding justice and information about their disappeared family members.
Scores of the protestors mostly elderly persons holding banners and placards and demanded to trace out their kith and kin who were subjected to “enforced” disappearances since 1989 in Kashmir. The family members of disappeared youth, mostly females during their silent-sit in castigated the successive governments for being biased towards their pain and agony.
Blaming the government forces for all the destruction in Kashmir, Parveena Ahanger-founder and Chairperson of APDP in Jammu and Kashmir said that all the powers given to forces like APSFA should be removed from the state. Nobody is listening to us, we neither want money nor any sympathy from government, bring our beloved ones back that’s it,” Ahanger demanded.
