On June 14, 2018, the #UnitedNations Office of the High commission of #HumanRights (#OHCHR) released its first report on the human rights situation in Indian-Administered #Kashmir and Pakistan-Administered Kashmir btw July 2016 & April #KashmirGagged ImageImageImage
It found that allegations of #HumanRights violations during this period were widespread & serious, particularly the excessive use of force by Indian security forces that led to numerous human casualties. It also documents these allegations & witnesses’ accounts of #violence.
Drawn largely from information already in the public domain,the report reflects the research of human rights defenders & local,national & international #NGOs. It also draws from official documents, such as questions in Parliament,court orders & police reports, & PTI news reports.
