Victims’ kin of 2010 carnage condemn yatri killings, demand justice

Srinagar, July 15

Relatives of 2010 carnage victims condemned the recent attack on Amarnath yatris in which seven pilgrims were killed. In a statement issued here today, the victims’ kin said that they stand in solidarity with the families of the victims.

The statement, issued by the parents of four teenagers Tufail Mattoo, Wamiq Farooq, Zahid Farooq and Umar Qayoom who were killed in 2010, said that the victims’ kin appeal to the international bodies to make “a humanitarian intervention” in their case.

Around 120 Kashmiris, mainly youth, were killed by forces during 2010 mass uprising. Though the government made commissions to probe the killings, the findings have not been made public.

Ashraf Ahmad Mattoo, father of Tufail Matoo, had asked State Human Rights Commission for a copy of findings of government appointed Koul commission which was denied.
