New York: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj is all set to address the United Nations General Assembly on Monday with all eyes set on her speech in which she is expected to deliver a stinging response to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's "tirade" on Kashmir.

Reportedly, Sushma Swaraj has a proof to corner Pakistan over terror and human atrocities from UNGA platform.

What's the proof?

The fact that Balochistan Republican Party leader Brahumdagh Bugti formally sought asylum in Delhi will be showcased by Sushma Swaraj as proof against Pakistan's terror activities and human atrocities, according to a report in CNN-News18.

Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti's application seeking political asylum in India was received by the Home Ministry which is examining it.

"We have received Bugti's application for political asylum and it is under examination," a Home Ministry official had said.

Bugti had applied for asylum in Indian consulate in Geneva three days ago and the application was subsequently forwarded to the Ministry of External Affairs, which in turn sent it to the Home Ministry. India does not have a comprehensive asylum policy.

As per the United Nations, there are at least 6,480 asylum seekers in India but the government does not recognise them.

Swaraj is expected to give a stinging response to Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif's UN General Assembly (UNGA) speech, in which he had focused elaborately on Kashmir.

Swaraj arrived in New York on Saturday afternoon and will address the UN general debate on Monday.

"Leading India's delegation to the 71st UNGA. EAM @SushmaSwaraj arrives in New York," Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted.
