 In Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the situation for civilians particularly journalists and political activists has worsened under the Lieutenant Governor’s rule.

The scathing report chaired by Justice AP Shah, former chief justice of the Delhi High Court says the abuse of sedition and anti-terror laws such as the UAPA and PSA against activists and journalists continues.

The annual report – ‘Three Years as a Union Territory: Human Rights in J&K’ – was shared by the forum for Human Rights in Jammu and Kashmir.

Noting that the delimitation recommended by the Justice Desai commission “violates the one-person-one-vote principle”, the report has urged” New Delhi to “restore statehood to Jammu and Kashmir as promised”.
