Justice in Kashmir (IPTK
), a credible NGO, published a report of over 100 pages that not only confirmed the presence of unnamed and unmarked mass graves, but also through DNA tests confirming that the graves were of individuals who belonged to Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The report "Structure of Violence" was compiled by International Peoples Tribunal on Human Rights and Justice (IPTK
) and Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons (APDP) in the recent years.
