The government on Friday informed the legislative assembly that 51 persons were killed by government forces in Kashmir during the uprising triggered by the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July 2016.

In a written reply, the government said that 51 civilians died between July 2016 to February 2017.

Interestingly, the government has already agreed to provide compensation to families of 76 civilians killed during this period. However, the civil society groups and newspapers suggest that more than 100 civilians were killed during the six-month-long uprising.
