Tramboo concerned about discovery of another 150 graves

Srinagar, July 01, 2013 (PPI-OT): The Chairman of International Council for Human Rights (ICHR), Barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo has expressed grave concern over the discovery of another 150 unknown graves in Beerwah, Budgam, saying the discovery visualizes the state of human rights violation committed by Indian forces in occupied Kashmir.

Barrister Abdul Majeed Tramboo in a statement in Brussels further said that more than ten thousand enforced disappeared persons had been brutally killed in custody and buried in these newly-discovered graves.

Mr. Tramboo has raised the mass graves issue on various international forums in the past. The European parliament even passed a resolution in this regard. Sensing the gravity of the issue, the EU appointed James Ales as Special Rapporteur to have deliberation with India on this issue, the statement added.

Barrister Tramboo also expressed his grave concern over the deteriorating state of human rights across the length and breadth of the territory.

“India is maintaining the policy of genocide in Kashmir which they are implementing in letter and spirit, torturing the young generation physically as well as psychologically, implementing the warfare techniques to evanish the resistance movement,” he said.

Meanwhile, the JKLF-R in a statement in Srinagar condemned the harassment and arrest of the people across the valley especially youth before and during the Indian Prime Minister’s visit to the valley. India has turned the territory into an army garrison, it said. The JKLF-R condemned the arrest of Ghulam Nabi Kashmiri, senior party leader.
