ISLAMABAD:A group of pellet victims protesting under the banner of Jammu and Kashmir Pellet Victims Association in Indian occupied Kashmir have said that in absence of a comprehensive plan for their rehabilitation, many of them have been driven to desperation.

According to Kashmir Media Service, they made this statement at the Press Enclave in held Srinagar. They said some NGOs have been pocketing money that they collect from people for the welfare of pellet victims.

They urged the people to come forward and help them directly to stop misuse of donations.

“There are many people and some NGOs that are minting money in our name,” said Muhammad Ashraf Wani, a pellet victim.

“People also stopped helping us since there is a notion among masses that we got compensation and jobs from the government which is not true,” he added. —APP
