By Ovais Gull
Srinagar: Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) Monday registered their monthly protest in Srinagar’s Pratap Park here to press the government to trace their beloved ones who are disappeared since decades.
The members of the association led by its chairperson, Parveena Ahanger assembled at Srinagar’s Pratap Park under the banner of APDP and demanded whereabouts of their beloved ones.
Pertinently, the association on every 10th of the month registers their protest against the disappearance of their beloved to press the government over fulfillment of their demands.
The association castigated the successive regimes for failing to trace their beloved ones.
Ahanger while talking to The INS said that the government has utterly failed to trace their beloved ones. “We are waiting justice since decades but nothing has been done in this regard,” she said.
She said all the successive regimes have failed to look into the agony of hundreds of mothers whose kith and kin were disappeared decades ago.
The family members of the disappeared persons alleged that their kin have been subjected to enforced disappearances by the forces and their related agencies from their homes, streets and even roads.
The association members vowed to continue their struggle for truth, justice and accountability till both the state and central governments accept their demand of impartial probe into the enforced disappearances and custodial killings.
