Pakistan Observer - - KASHMIR -

SRI­NA­GAR—The Voice of Vic­tims has said that there are more than 10,00,000 phys­i­cally tor­ture sur­vivors in the ter­ri­tory and 95 per cent of them are civil­ians. Ab­dul Qadeer, the VoV Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor, in a state­ment is­sued in Sri­na­gar while quot­ing the sur­vey con­ducted by the rights body, said, the num­ber of men- tal tor­ture vic­tims is more than half-amil­lion in Jammu and Kash­mir.

“Since the army, para­mil­i­tary and po­lice are op­er­at­ing with le­gal, moral and po­lit­i­cal im­punity, so they are not feel­ing any sort of ac­count­abil­ity and the phe­nom­e­non still con­tinue un­abat­edly,” he said.—KMS
