Abstract

The recent Amnesty International report examines the phenomenon of disappearances in Jammu and Kashmir. While some of the 'missing' may have crossed the border, by far the larger number have fallen victim to state terrorism - arrest, detention, torture and death at the hands of the security forces. Courts cannot provide much relief as court orders are ignored by bureaucrats and armed forces.
