It is about seventy-five years since Indian troops swept into Kashmir and took possession of an area that is predominantly Muslim. The ensuing decades have merely witnessed India assuming the role of its former British colonial officials who ruled over people rather than having people rule themselves. Last May, two young Kashmiri girls were found dead. The initial conclusion of the Central Bureau of Investigation was the girls drowned in a stream. Eventually, there was a version two which stated the girls were raped and killed. Most Muslims in the area believed the girls were raped and killed by Indians, possible members of the police.
After months of discussion an investigation revealed that evidence had been subjected to tampering. The examiners accused 13 people including doctors of tampering with evidence, but they exonerated any police for being involved. People who are subject to colonial rule have difficulty accepting such investigations.
