Curative plea for investigation of massacre of Kashmiri Pandits after 33 years rejected

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has dismissed a curative petition filed to probe the 1989-90 genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in Jammu and Kashmir. Roots in Kashmir, an organization of Kashmiri Pandits, filed a curative petition demanding an inquiry into the matter.

It was said in the petition that if the Sikh riots of 1984 could be investigated after 33 years, then it could happen in this case also. In 2017, the Supreme Court dismissed the review petition, saying it was difficult to collect evidence after 27 years of the massacre. The petition, filed in 2017, alleged that despite the registration of 215 FIRs, no action was taken in even a single case.

Significantly, in Kashmir in 1989-90, Kashmiri Pandits were forced to flee from their homes under the threat of massacre. Despite the threats, those who did not go in fear were killed. Not only this, their houses were also looted and burnt.
