Assembled at the house of a survivor in Kunan, a local committee formed by victims said that over the years, they have fought hard for justice but no one has been punished yet.

The committee said that they approached many so far including people at the help, media, women’s commission to seek their help, but all this failed to yield any result.

“Our women folk feel ashamed when any unknown person visits the hamlet,” the committee said. They said that the case was shifted from High Court Srinagar to Supreme Court back in 2014 but since then no hearing took place.
