Institutional impunity and violence in Jammu & Kashmir

Some of our coverage of Jammu & Kashmir in past years.

A report released by Jammu and Kashmir Coalition for Civil Society (JKCCS) on 9 September 2015 claimed that the Indian government had institutionalised impunity and violence in Jammu & Kashmir. The report, titled 'Structures of Violence: The Indian State in Jammu and Kashmir', was compiled by International Peoples' Tribunal (IPTK) and the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP), and documents over 1080 extrajudicial killings and 172 enforced disappearances. Here is some of Himal's coverage of the region through the years:
