UN urged to investigate brutal torture by Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir
In occupied Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society and Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons have urged United Nations to establish a commission to investigate brutal torture by Indian forces in the territory.
In their report, JKCCS and APDP focused on Indian state terrorism in occupied Kashmir since 1990, and provide a contextual understanding of various phases of torture being perpetrated in Jammu and Kashmir since 1947.
The report also urged India to ratify U.N. Convention against torture and also allow global right groups unhindered access to Kashmir.
Former U.N. special rapporteur on torture, Juan E. Mendz said the report would help draw attention to the need to express concern about India’s human rights record.
