PRESS TRUST OF INDIA

Srinagar, Dec 24: In the backdrop of massive protests in Delhi following gang rape of a student last week, a group of students today staged protest here to seek justice for the rape victims in Kashmir.
 "We welcome justice for the rape victim in Delhi but at the same time we demand that justice for all such victims in Kashmir especially those who were raped in Kunan Poshpora in early 1990's," the protesting students said outside the Press Enclave here.
 The protesters also demanded a slew of measures to safeguard women in Kashmir against molestation.
 "We demand greater police patrolling, tougher laws, fast tracking of such cases and harsh punishment for the rapists," said Owais Ahmad, one of the protesters.
 The protesters assembled at Press Enclave under the banner of Youth Brigade of Kashmir and later dispersed peacefully. They were carrying placards demanding justice for victims of Kunan  Poshpora and other such cases in Kashmir and held a candle light vigil.
