Srinagar: Kashmir's worst kept secret is now out in the open. What many have suspected about several mysterious disappearances in Kashmir may be true, a new human rights report says nearly 2700 alleged militant graves are not what was claimed.

The investigation team of the J&K state Human Rights Commission, after a three-year probe, has found out 2700 unmarked graves.
It brings new hope for those like 26-year-old Bilquees fighting for justice for her missing father Manzoor Ahmad Dar. Mr Dar disappeared in 2002 after he was picked up by the Army from his home. While an Army Major has now been indicted for this, there's no closure for his grieving family.
"We appeal to the government to just tell us what has happen to my father? Where is my father? If his grave is anywhere, for God sake tell us where is his grave," says a grieving Bilquees.
During the investigation, more than 500 bodies in unmarked graves were identified - they were found to be local militants and civilians.
