July 25, 2006
Parents and relatives of Kashmiri people who went missing following their reported arrest by the Indian security forces on Tuesday held a silent vigil in Srinagar.
The vigil at the summer capital's Sher-e-Kashmir Park was organised by the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons which alleges that more than 8,000 people have disappeared during the 17-year unrest by Muslim separatists.
However, authorities acknowledge that only a couple of thousand people have disappeared.
