Indian troops had gang-raped around 100 women of all ages from eight to eighty years old on the night of February 23 in 1991 during a siege and search operation in Kunan-poshpora.
As human rights violations by the Indian occupying forces take a darker turn, the *Kashmir Media Service* link has reported that since 2016, more than 10,000 protestors have been shot at with pellet guns and teargassed.
Approximately 900 women have been gang-raped and molested and more than 3,000 structures, including business and residential, have been destroyed.
