Over the last month in Kashmir some 60 people have been killed and more than 5,000 injured in an upsurge of violence. It is a major setback for peace in the troubled region, which is claimed by both India and Pakistan.

“This is the bullet that killed my son,” Abdul Rehman Mir says, holding up a copper cartridge case.

He tells me the police raided the family home in Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, a month ago.

They smashed windows and fired tear gas grenades. He’s kept what’s left of the grenades too, wrapped in a handkerchief stained with his son’s blood.

“They dragged him from here,” he tells me – we’re in one of the rooms on the first floor – “and they shot him in the garden. That is where he died.”
