1105 disappeared in JK: Govt

Chief Miniter of Jammu & Kashmir made the following written reply to a question posed by senior PDP leader Abdul Haq Khan in the Legislative Assembly

“Only 1105 persons are reported to have disappeared in the State since 1989,”- Omar Abdullah

Omar Abdullah also happens to hold the Home Ministry of the state.

This dispels the myth built by Kashmiri separatists & ISI that there were gross human rights violation in Kashmir and tens of thousands of youths claimed to be missing .

What hold significance is that out of these 1105 , filed as disappeared , many are expected to have crossed over to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and never returned .

While speaking to The Kashmir , Aijaz Dar of Kupwara estimates that around 1000 + youth who are still in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. That leaves the missing people to around 100 in last 22 Years of militancy.

Meanwhile J&K Govt is giving final touch to bring the youth back POK and enable the settlement in Indian Kashmir.

Kashmiri Pandit organisations are opposing this rehabilitation and surrender policy.
