Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, the Kashmir Pandit Sangarsh Samiti (KPSM) has blasted the puppet administration for its failure to come up with the truth on different massacres of Kashmiri Pandits, and demanded re-opening of the killings and disappearances cases. Pandit community had faced six massacres from 1997 to 2003 and the puppet administration had not comprehensively investigated even a single massacre. In a statement in Srinagar, the Samiti’s President, Sanjay K. Tickoo, said that it was very disgusting that the police had closed most of the massacre cases for ‘want of evidence’. KPSM president said, “By this the police department and the administration have played with the emotions of the Kashmiri Pandits and have given way to the unscrupulous elements who are behind the killings.” He added that he had approached the so-called State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) and it had already directed the inspector general of police in occupied Kashmir to file a detailed report in the matter but nothing had happened till date. Sanjay K. Tickoo maintained that there was no reason that their community should trust the police department or puppet administration and demanded a thorough CBI inquiry into these matters.
