Indian activists, parliamentarians visit Kunan-Poshpora

Srinagar, June 15, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, an eight-member delegation of Indian civil society and parliamentarians visited Kunan-Poshpora and met the victims of 1991 mass-rape incident. The delegation headed by senior journalist and civil society activist, Seema Mustafa, visited the houses of the victims and interacted with them. Some victims narrated the happenings of the fateful night when the Indian troops of 4th Rajputana Rifles indulged in mass molestation in the area.

Seema Mustafa, who is heading the group, termed the incident as a blot on the face of Indian democracy. “We want that the case should be reopened and the guilty should be brought to book,” Seema Mustafa said.

“We will make a report and hold a press conference to highlight the issue. We will also meet the Indian Defence Minister after going back to Delhi and take up the matter with him,” she added.
