    Can we support this POW cause or can any one question as per RTI on such issues


    <o:p> </o:p><o:p></o:p>DEAR INDIANS

    THIS IS AN MAIL I RECEIVED THROUGH VARIOUS OF MY FRIENDS IN ARMY, NHRC AND NGOs.

    I FAILED TO RESIST MY SELF TO SHARE THE SAME WITH ALL OF YOU

    ALSO WANTED TO ASK THAT DOES RTI ACT HAS GOT PROVISIONS WHEREIN POW RELATED QUESTIONS CAN BE ASKED AND TO WHOM

    ABHINAV
    ....FEELING LOW

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    Lt. Saurabh Kalia of 4 JAT Regiment of the Indian Army laid down his life at the young age of 22 for the nation while
    guarding the frontiers at Kargil.

    His parents, indeed the Indian Army and nation itself, lost a dedicated, honest and brave son. He was the first officer to detect and inform about Pakistani intrusion.
    <st1:country-region><st1:place>Pakistan</st1:place></st1:country-region> captured him and his patrol party of 5 brave men alive on <st1:date year="1999" day="15" month="5">May 15, 1999</st1:date> from the Indian side of LOC.

    They were kept in captivity for three weeks and subjected to unprecedented brutal torture, evident from their bodies handed over by Pakistan Army on
    <st1:date year="1999" day="9" month="6">June 9, 1999</st1:date>.

    The Pakistanis indulged in dastardly acts of inflicting burns on these Indian officers with cigarettes, piercing their
    ears with hot rods, removing their eyes before puncturing them and breaking most of the bones and teeth.They even chopped off various limbs and private organs of the Indian soldiers besides inflicting unimaginable physical and
    mental torture.

    After 22 days of torture, the brave soldiers were ultimately shot dead. A detailed post-mortem report is with the Indian
    Army.
    <st1:country-region><st1:place>Pakistan</st1:place></st1:country-region> dared to humiliate <st1:country-region><st1:place>India</st1:place></st1:country-region> this way flouting all international norms. They proved the extent to which they can degrade humanity.

    However, the Indian soldiers did not break while undergoing all this unimaginable barbarism, which speaks volumes
    of their patriotism, grit, determination, tenacity and valour - something all of
    <st1:country-region><st1:place>India</st1:place></st1:country-region> should be proud of. Sacrificing oneself for the nation is an honour every soldier would be proud of, but no parent, army or nation can accept
    what happened to these brave sons of
    <st1:country-region><st1:place>India</st1:place></st1:country-region> . I am afraid every parent may think twice to send their child in the
    armed forces if we all fall short of our duty in safeguarding the
    PRISONERS OF WAR AND LET THEM MEET THE FATE OF LT.SAURABH KALIA.

    It may also send a demoralising signal to the army personnel fighting for the Nation that our POWs in Pak cannot be
    taken care of. It is a matter of shame and disgust that most of Indian Human Rights Organisations by and large, showed apathy in this matter. Through this humble submission, may I appeal to all the civilized people irrespective of colour, caste, region, religion and political lineage to stir their conscience and rise to take this as a NATIONAL ISSUE !!!

    International Human Rights Organizations must be approached to expose and pressure
    <st1:country-region><st1:place>Pakistan</st1:place></st1:country-region> to identify, book and
    punish all those who perpetrated this heinous crime to our men in uniform. If
    <st1:country-region><st1:place>Pakistan</st1:place></st1:country-region> is allowed to go unpunished in this case, we can only imagine the consequences.

    Below is the list of 5 other soldiers who preferred to die for the country rather than open their mouths in front of
    enemy -

    1. Sep. Arjun Ram s/o Sh. Chokka Ram; Village &
    <st1:place>PO </st1:place>Gudi. Teh. & Dist. Nagaur, (Rajasthan)
    2. Sep. Bhanwar Lal Bagaria h/o Smt. Santosh Devi; Village Sivelara;Teh.& Dist.Sikar (Rajasthan)
    3. Sep. Bhikaram h/o Smt. Bhawri Devi; Village Patasar; Teh. Pachpatva;Distt.Barmer (Rajasthan)
    4. Sep. Moola Ram h/o Smt. Rameshwari Devi; Village Katori; Teh. Jayal;Dist.Nagaur(Rajasthan)
    5. Sep. Naresh Singh h/o Smt. Kalpana Devi; Village Chhoti Tallam; Teh.Iglab; Dist.Aligarh (UP)

    Just a few questions.
    1. Have you seen the report of post-mortem conducted by Indian Authorities?
    2. If yes, can someone put it on web for the world to see?
    3. If not, can we get the report from Indian Government under RTI?
