Amnesty International has asked India to immediately ban the use of pellet guns against oppressed Kashmiris by its forces in occupied Kashmir.

In a statement, the human rights group also criticized Indian authorities for failing to support those who have been injured and disabled by the weapons.

Meanwhile, Kashmiri representative Syed Faiz Naqshbandi has apprised the international community about grim human rights situation in occupied Kashmir.

In a statement submitted at a session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, Syed Faiz Naqshbandi informed the world body that India did not allow a UN fact-finding team to visit occupied Kashmir as suggested by the High Commissioner for Human Rights to assess the human rights violations.

The statement said Kashmiri resistance leaders; Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik and others were in continued detention and being victimized and harassed by Indian forces and even not allowed to meet the people.

Syed Faiz Naqshbandi urged the Council to play a role in ending the human rights violations and send a UN fact-finding mission to occupied Kashmir.
