• Repeal security legislations
• Carry impartial probe into Shopian incident
• What about past inquiries?
. Police, troopers fired live ammunition at protestors
• Police failed to interview potential witnesses
• Present detained leaders before judicial authority
Rising Kashmir News Srinagar, June 11: The Amnesty International has criticized New Delhi for the continued human rights violations in Kashmir and the recent rape and murder of two women allegedly by troopers.In its report released on Wednesday, the Amnesty called on Indian authorities to immediately carry out fair and impartial investigations into the allegations of paramilitary CRPF involvement in the murders and sexual assault of the two women.
The two women, 22-year-old Aasiya Jan and her sister-in-law, 17-year-old Nilofer Jan, went missing when they went to tend their family fruit orchard on 29 May at Nagbal near Shopian. Their bodies were discovered next day in two different places at Ranbi Ara, a stream close to paramilitary CRPF camp.The Amnesty report said police and paramilitary forces had resorted to firing at protesters in several places including Shopian, Baramulla and Srinagar. “Reports from hospitals that admitted the injured indicate that troops fired both live ammunition and rubber bullets.”Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific Director, Sam Zarifi said authorities should ensure that troops comply with international human rights standards on law enforcement, in particular those relating to the use of force to deal with protestors. “Any instance of excessive use of force should be impartially investigated. These protests are about the ongoing failure of the Indian government to bring troopers to justice for serious human rights violations.”The report said police had failed to interview potential witnesses even as the state authorities ordered a judicial inquiry into the murders.The Amnesty called for repeal of the security legislation in force in Jammu and Kashmir that facilitates impunity by providing discretionary powers to troopers and effectively enabling them to violate human rights.It also expressed serious concern over the effectiveness of past inquiries ordered by the authorities into human rights violations including unlawful killings, enforced disappearances and sexual assault of women.The report said that Amnesty had received information on 8 June that at least four pro-freedom Kashmiri leaders had been arbitrarily detained.“No charge has been leveled against them so far,” the Amnesty said. “One of the detained leaders, Syed Ali Geelani was taken to an unknown destination. Yasin Malik, Javed Mir and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq were placed under house arrest.”Amnesty called on the authorities to disclose details of their detention including as to how they are being treated and immediately release those detained unless they are charged with a recognizable criminal offence.Amnesty International has also said that they should only be held in official and acknowledged places of detention and brought promptly before an independent judicial authority.


  1. Bruised Kashmiri11 June, 2009 21:31

    While I fully endorse the views expressed in various blogs about the dubious role played by our dirty politicians in this hour of grief, I feel surprised about the behaviour of our own kashmiri doctors who conducted autopsies of the deceased women and did not dare to come out in open about the dastardly injuries inflicted upon the victims. On first autopsy, there was no mention of rape or murder, on second autopsy too, murder was obscure. They had to hold series of long and close-door meetings to arrive at some conclusion first at the office of CMO Shopian and then at the office of Director Health Kashmir. Conflicting reports were sent to the media with NDTV even reporting that murder could not be established in the autopsy in spite of the fact that there were sharp injuries on the forehead of Asiya. Even the gang rape of Neelofar was put under scanner on the pretext that she was already married and pregnant.

    My point is that if the blood of a common Kashmiri boils with greater ferocity every time we hear the details of that spine-chilling incident, why is not the conscience of our doctors moved. Why don't they declare in an unambiguous tone as to what had happened to the two victims. Why are they hiding the facts and abetting the crime committed by inhuman Indian security forces. I am awe-struck at the conscience of our torch bearers of humanity and health and really feel pity for them and their helplessness. Shame on CMO, BMO, Director Health and all physicians who participated in the autopsy.
