Army ensuring impunity to accused personnel: JKCCS

Greater Kashmir

Srinagar, Jan 15: Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society, Kunan-Poshpora Village Committee and Support Group for Justice for Kunan-Poshpora victims in a joint statement have expressed dismay over the move of Army to file fresh petition in High Court against the orders passed by Judicial Magistrate Kupwara for reinvestigation into Kunan-Poshpora mass rape case.
“There is no reason why this petition could not have been filed during the earlier session of the High Court. The Army is already a party to the petition that the survivors filed in the High Court seeking court-monitored investigations. This change of position, seen in light of the Indian army petition seeking stay of investigations, suggests that the Indian army is doing all it can to ensure that there is impunity for its personnel,” the statement said.
