Crackdown: The identification parades of early 1990s Kashmir

In the early 1990s Kashmir, there was a time when it was difficult to segretage militants from the local innocent residents. After major incidents of insurgency, the Army would rely on their informers to identify the terrorists. The crackdowns were always sudden to get people queued up in market places or even villages. The masked informers would then hint at the suspected insurgents to be picked up. Others would then be let off.
