October 09, 2019

The global watchdog, Human Rights Watch has urged India to release political prisoners, end crackdown operations and restore internet and mobile services in occupied Kashmir.

In a statement, South Asia Director, Meenakshi Ganguly said numerous foreign leaders have expressed concern over continued detention of Kashmiri leaders and problems in accessing public services, including emergency medical care.

She said Indian activists filed a complaint with the Supreme Court to ensure protection of children after the media reported that many had been detained, beaten, or denied safe access to schools.
