India: UN Kashmir report relied on unverified sources

United Nations : Reacting angrily to Pakistan’s reference to a UN report on Kashmir at the Security Council,  India has said the “so-called” report reflects “clear bias” and was not even found fit to be considered by the members of the human rights body where it was submitted.

Pakistan raked up the issue of J&K at a UN session on Monday, the third time it did so in as many weeks. India hit back saying there has been yet another attempt by Pakistan to misuse the UN forum by referring to situations that are extraneous to the discussions. Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN Maleeha Lodhi referred to the June 14 report on Kashmir and PoK by UN high commissioner for human rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein during an SC debate on Children and Armed Conflict.

India’s deputy permanent representative to UN ambassador Tanmaya Lal said the report about J&K reflects the “clear bias of an official acting without mandate whatsoever and relied on unverified sources of information.”
