UN to India: lift restrictions in J&K, fully restore human rights

Oct 29, 2019 21:37 IST

The United Nations on Tuesday expressed concern over the situation in Kashmir saying that people in the Valley continue to be deprived of a wide range of human rights and urged India to fully restore their rights. Spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said there have been several reports of use of excessive force by security forces during sporadic protests. He added that allegations of torture and ill-treatment of people held in detention, must be independently and impartially investigated. The undeclared curfew imposed by the authorities was lifted from much of Jammu and Ladakh region within a few days after the scrapping of Article 370, but is reportedly still in place in large parts of the Kashmir Valley.
