The Zukoora And Tengpora Massacre was the killing of protesters calling for the implementation of a United Nations resolution regarding a plebiscite in Kashmir at Zakoora Crossing and Tengpora Bypass Road in Srinagar on 1 March 1990,[1] in which 33 people were killed and 47 injured.[2] It led Amnesty International to issue an appeal for urgent action on Kashmir.[3] The police charged a number of soldiers with murder and attempted murder, but the charges were later dropped in favour of an internal army investigation.[2]
