Indian troops, in their continued acts of state terrorism, martyred 14 Kashmiris including a boy and a woman in the last month of September. According to the data compiled by the Research Section of Kashmir Media Service, these killings rendered 1 woman widowed and 1 child orphaned. During the month, 43 people were critically injured when Indian police and paramilitary troopers used brute force against peaceful demonstrators while 113 civilians were arrested. The troops also disgraced six women in the month. The All Parties Hurriyet Conference in a statement in Srinagar appealed to the peace-loving nations of the world to play an effective role in resolving the Kashmir dispute to save the people of the region from the dangers of nuclear war. Senior APHC leader, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi addressing a gathering at Chadoora in Budgam deplored that India was trying to shield its troops and police personnel by not allowing the international agencies to probe the continued gross human rights violations in the territory. The forum patronised by the veteran Kashmiri Hurriyet leader, Syed Ali Gilani, has said that protest demonstrations across the territory would be launched if the authorities did not lift police siege from the residence of the veteran leader. A New Delhi-based think tank, Centre for Policy Analysis, in a letter called upon the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh to set a time-frame for identifying the bodies found in mass graves in occupied Kashmir and constitute an independent commission to prosecute the guilty. On the other hand, participants of a sit-in protest led by human rights activist, Muhammad Ahsan Untoo at Municipal Park in Srinagar demanded probe into unmarked graves to ascertain the identity of the buried persons.
