“There was a funeral. There is a grave. But there is no death certificate for a 17-year-old who died fleeing CRPF personnel.”
This may be insane but it is how the Indian government misrepresents fatality statistics caused by its siege & blockade. In many ways, it’s like US Pentagon policy that does not account for the deaths of civilians killed in its many wars. It’s a way of ‘disappearing’ those killed by war, occupation, genocide.
