Indian government denies a Kashmiri family the body of their deceased loved one

On 12th September, the Supreme Court of India rejected a plea by the father of a Kashmiri civilian, Amir Magray, murdered by the Indian state in a fake encounter in Jammu and Kashmir’s Hyderpora area last year. The plea sought permission for the exhumation of Amir’s body and handing it over to the family for performing last rites, a right that was denied to them. The Indian forces after killing Amir had buried him miles away from his home, denying the family the right to even bury their unjustly killed loved one. The event shows how it’s not just the Indian military that oppresses the Kashmiri people, but the judiciary also acts as a tool to validate and justify this oppression.[6]
