United Nations calls for inquiry into human rights violations in Kashmir

Geneva: The United Nations on Thursday called for an international inquiry into alleged human rights violations in Kashmir saying that government  forces have used excessive force in Kashmir and killed and wounded numerous civilians since 2016, Reuters reported

In the first U.N. report on human rights in both Indian-administered and Pakistan-administered Kashmir, it urged Pakistan to end its “misuse” of anti-terror legislation to persecute peaceful activists and quash dissent.

There was no immediate comment by either government to the report issued by the U.N. human rights office in Geneva, which called for justice for victims on both sides of the so-called Line of Conflict, Reuters reported
