Our bodies, your politics

Standard

In one week, two stories about the abuse of power and violence against women and both in Kashmir.

The first is the story of the two girls whose bodies were recovered from the river. Traces of semen were found on the girls, although the doctors doing the post-mortem have ruled out murder.

The second is of a 15 year old who was repeatedly abused by a constable.
