In Indian Kashmir, a prominent rights group has discovered several unmarked graves containing about 1,500 unidentified bodies in the valley, reported a private TV channel Friday. Members of the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons said that at least eight of the graves had more than one body most likely of the innocent people killed by Indian paramilitary forces. Weve found that at least eight are mass graves as they contain more than one body, the APDPs lawyer, Pervez Imroz told media. We have found more graves of about 1,500 people buried as unidentified persons in three remote districts during our ongoing survey, Pervez Imroz said. The latest report from the districts of Baramulla, Kupwara and Bandipura is part of the APDPs ongoing survey of the northern parts of the Kashmir Valley. Last year, in a report titled, Facts Under Ground, the APDP had reported discovery of unmarked graves of about 1,000 people near Uri in Baramulla district. After that report, the Amnesty International had called for an independent probe into the unnamed graves. Ramesh Gopalakrishnan, a researcher from the London-based rights groups South Asia team, said there had been no responsible and serious response on the subject either by the Kashmir administration or Indian govt. The European Union Parliament also passed a resolution asking India to investigate the matter but New Delhi is yet to pay heed to the appeal. Human rights workers have been complaining for years that innocent people have disappeared in the occupied territory after being killed by government forces in staged gun battles, and suspected rebels have been arrested and never heard again. Rights groups say there have been an estimated 8,000 to 10,000 disappearances since 1989.
