Maqbooza Kashmir

Cédric Gerbehaye

For more than a year, a new wave of violent insurrection has been shaking Indian Kashmir.
In nearly 36 months, the fighting resulted in the death of 130 combatants, about 100 civilians, as well as 15,000 wounded and thousands of arrests. In particular, the misuse of pistols throwing lead balls by the security forces against the crowd resulted in the death and partial or total blindness of many demonstrators.
Meanwhile, New Delhi said 39 policemen or soldiers were killed, and another 4,000 wounded in clashes and assaults.
