The untold story of Punjab’s missing

The Punjab Documentation and Advocacy Project (PDAP) started in 2008. What started as a formalised attempt to pool the collective experience, knowledge and data of the Punjab conflict has steadily evolved into a systematic, comprehensive and evaluative system of documentation of the human rights abuses in Punjab in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

The original aims were to document cases of those extra-judicially executed, ‘disappeared’ and arbitrarily detained in Punjab, India between 1978-1996, as comprehensively as possible.

Punjab Disappeared: Claiming the Unclaimed is a 70-minute documentary about enforced disappearances and extra-judicial killings in Punjab that took place during more than a decade of conflict in the north Indian state.  Thousands of people, mainly young Sikh men, disappeared after being picked up and detained by Punjab police. 

The film traces the work of the Punjab Documentation and Advocacy Project and the pioneering work of Punjab activist Jaswant Singh Khalra in uncovering the identities of thousands of previously unidentified bodies cremated from early 1980 to the mid 1990s.
