Rights groups seek reinvestigation on FIRs
SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, Jun 1: International People's Tribunal on Human Rights and Justice Kashmir (IPTK) and Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) Friday filed an application before State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) seeking re-investigation into FIRs registered in connection with disappearances and unmarked graves.
The decision according to SHRC officials, whether to admit application for further perusal or not would be taken by a division bench next Wednesday.
In the application, the rights groups have sought that SHRC should ascertain how many dead bodies were registered in 2,683 FIRs. They have also sought the identification of the places of burial of these unidentified people.
According to an official of the rights groups, they have also filed an RTI application before the J&K police with regard to death of unidentified persons. In response, the official said, they were told by the Police that in the 28 police stations of three districts of North Kashmir, Baramulla, Kupwara and Bandipora, 2,683 FIRs are registered with regard to death of unidentified persons.
Most of the FIRs according to official are related to unmarked graves discovered by the investigation wing of the SHRC in these three districts last year.
Secretary SHRC, Tariq Ahmad Banday told Greater Kashmir that on coming Wednesday decision to admit the application or not would be taken by a division bench.
Pertinently, in Jammu and Kashmir, between 1989-2012, the violent turmoil resulted in over 8,000 enforced disappearances and more than 80,000 deaths. These rights groups have carried out surveys across J&K and have documented the cases of disappearance.
