Indian Police arrests Kashmiri leader from outside Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi

NEW DELHI - Delhi Police arrested Kashmiri human rights activist Mohammed Ahsan Untoo when he was about to enter the Pakistan High Commission on Friday, officials said.

Untoo, who runs International Forum of Justice and Human Rights, was invited among others, including separatist leaders, from the militancy-hit Jammu and Kashmir by the High Commission to attend an event to mark Pakistan's National Day.

Separatists from the state, including moderate Hurriyat Conference chairperson Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and others, have been barred from the function for the last three years.

Pakistan Day is celebrated to mark the Lahore Resolution on March 23 each year.
