Srinagar: Opposition People's Democratic Party on Monday demanded a high-level probe by an impartial agency to establish identities of the persons buried in unmarked graves in Kashmir.

DNA tests of unidentified bodies should be conducted without wasting any time to give justice to the families of the victims, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said in a statement in Srinagar.
She was reacting to the report of the investigative wing of the State Human Rights Commission about unmarked graves having more than 2000 bodies in 38 places in the Valley.
Mehbooba said she was surprised that in spite of decline in the graph of militancy, fake encounters were still taking place in the state.

The PDP president recalled that since the formation of the National Conference-Congress government, the number of encounters on the Line of Control (LoC) showed a sudden rise and there is apprehension that majority of such encounters are fake.
