Srinagar: Association of Parents of
Disappeared Persons (APDP) on Thursday demanded an investigation
into the case of a youth, who has been missing since April 4,
from south Kashmir`s Anantnag district.
"When it comes to high profile political murders (like
the one of Moulvi Showkat Ahmad Shah recently), police swiftly
comes out with a chargesheet against some persons without even
providing a shred of evidence, but when there are cases like
Susheel no one seems to be interested in investigating," APDP
said in a statement.

Susheel Raina, 21, of Chandergam village of Anantnag
district had left his home to collect his marksheet from
college but has not returned since.

"Susheel`s disappearance is an indicator of the
continued phenomenon of people disappearing in Jammu and
Kashmir," the APDP said.
APDP, which is an association of the relatives of youths
who disappeared over the last 20 years, also held a protest at
the Sher-e-Kashmir park in Srinagar demanding "independent and
impartial" investigations into the phenomenon of "enforced
disappearances".

"We demand an investigation into the case. Justice
should not be selective. If police can swiftly investigate the
high profile cases, why cannot it investigate these cases,"
Khuram Parvez, a human rights activist, said.
