Protest against Kashmir massacres

SRINAGAR: A silent and peaceful protest led by International Forum for Justice Chairman Muhammad Ahsan Untoo was stageged against ‘multiple massacres’ of Kashmir Valley.

The protesters carrying banners and placards sought exemplary punishment for those involved in the killing of innocent Kashmiri people.

Untoo told CNS that Government Forces involved in so many massacres are roaming free and no Security personnel have been brought to book so far. I “had lodged a complaint against CRPF personnel involved in 1990 Gawkadal massacre in State Human Rights Commission in 2012 and till date nothing positive have come out despite the fact that inquiry was conducted by SP State Human Rights Commission,” Untoo said.

He said there are so many administrative officials who are still alive and it is the right and duty of the State to question them about the Gowkadal massacre. “Then Governor Jagmohan does not occupy any post now and same is the case with other witnesses who occupied important posts in Kashmir at the time of massacre. They must be questioned and their statements should be recorded so that justice could be delivered without any more delay now,” he said. (CNS)
