The report said that these killings also included 47 women and 142 children. It pointed out that the killings by the troops rendered 181 women widowed and 445 children orphaned.

The report maintained that 33,150 people were injured due to the use of brute force by Indian army, paramilitary and police personnel on peaceful protesters while 41,136 others including Hurriyat leaders, activists, students, youth, journalists, Ulema, and human right activists were arrested during the period. It said the Indian forces’ personnel destroyed 4,479 residential houses and other structures and molested 1,134 women.

The report said more than 600 Kashmiri Muslim government employees were terminated from the service by the BJP regime. It said over 800 properties including agricultural lands, houses and shops of Kashmiris were confiscated by the BJP regime in the territory to punish them for their affiliation with the ongoing struggle for right to self-determination.

The APHC appealed to the international community to prevail upon India to resolve the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the Kashmiris’ aspirations.
