Ikhwani is a name given to a dreaded pro-government outfit that operated in Kashmir late nineties to crush militancy in Kashmir.

Kishtwari, who is accused of committing heinous crimes including killing of innocent civilians when he was shielded by government during the heydays of militancy is languishing in jail.

Zahoor Mir said that Kishtwari was arrested by police and he is thankful for this to them. “What I want is justice now and the killer should taste the power of law,” he said, adding that his father was butchered by Kishtwari 24 years ago in 1996.

“We were unable to get the body of our beloved one. Kishtwari, after killing him, dumped him somewhere and till date we don’t know where the body of my father lies,” Mir said.

He appealed the international justice bodies to work for DNA testing of 2156 unmarked graves, approved by the then State Human Rights Commission.
