Justice continues to elude the struggling people of Jammu and Kashmir even as International Justice Day is being commemorated across the globe, today.

A report released by Kashmir Media Service, today, in connection with the International Justice Day maintained that the defenseless and oppressed people of Jammu and Kashmir continue to suffer under the Indian colonialism for their commitment to the righteous demand of right to self -etermination.

Indian troops, paramilitary forces and police personnel enjoying impunity under draconian laws are committing grave human rights abuses, in fact, war crimes to suppress the just struggle for right to self determination, it added.
