The ransom note said the kidnappers were from an unheard of Islamic outfit and that they wanted the release of Pakistani militant leader Maulana Masood Azhar (later responsible for the attack on the Indian parliament). The kidnapping electrified the world and for the first time put the global spotlight on Kashmir. Within four days, one of the prisoners had made a hair-raising escape. A month on, was found, beheaded by his captors who had carved their name into his flesh. In the background, camped out in Delhi, the families of the missing struggled to keep their hopes alive, while international governments negotiated frantically with India, and the army, police and intelligence services tried to follow the trail.

Kudos to the author for bring out some shocking revelations on how a group of foreign backpackers who had nothing to do with the Kashmir issue were made as pawns in a game of politics between India & Pakistan. All the allegations/assumptions has well supported evidences.
Later part of this book highlights how the renegades were committing so many atrocities and HR violations with the help of the Indian security establishment.
A must read book for those who want to know a thing or two on Kashmir.
