NEW YORK, USA - At the United Nations, Pakistan has once again brought up the issues of enforced disappearances, extrajudicial killings, and unmarked graves in Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJ&K).

At the UN platform, Pakistan has demanded reparations for the missing people and their families in IIOJ&K.

Pakistan's blind envoy to the UN, Saima Saleem, highlighted alleged Indian atrocities in a working group discussion.

In New York, the Pak envoy revealed in a statement during a working group conversation on enforced disappearances that many graves of enforced missing persons had been discovered in the occupied valley in recent years.

She went on to claim that, in addition to enforced disappearances in Indian-occupied Kashmir, torture, deaths in custody, female desecration, illegal arrests, and extrajudicial killings were all on the rise.

According to Saima, the investigation has revealed that the occupying Indian soldiers first apprehended the victims and then tortured them to death while in their custody.

It is not the first time Pakistan has demanded a thorough UN probe into what it describes as gross human rights violations in Indian-occupied Kashmir.
