That this House notes with sadness and regret the discovery of over 6,000 unmarked graves in the area of demarcation known as the Line-of-Control on the border between Indian and Pakistani controlled Kashmir; further notes that this discovery was the focus of a recent Crossing Continents programme entitled Graves of Kashmir produced by BBC Radio 4; believes that these graves, the majority of which appear to be the bodies of unknown young men, constitute a large proportion of the estimated 8,000 to 10,000 who disappeared during the conflict in Kashmir, one of the heaviest militarised zones in the world; and calls on the Government to press for co-operation on this matter between the governments of India and Pakistan, and for the early use of forensic and DNA techniques to investigate and establish the identify of those in the graves so that relatives may finally know the fate of loved ones.
