Srinagar: An Amnesty International team,
on a week-long visit to Kashmir Valley to assess the situation
on the human rights front, Wednesday met Kashmiri Pandits.

The team met members of Kashmiri Pandit Sangarsh Samiti
(KPSS), a non-migrant Kashmiri Pandit organisation.

KPSS president Sanjay K Tickoo said "we discussed
issues pertaining to Kashmir and Kashmiri Pandits".

The two-member team, comprising both Indian nationals,
arrived here Monday after the Union government allowed the
Amnesty representatives to visit the Valley after a hiatus of
20 years.

B J Batra and Gopala Krishnan, the members of the team,
yesterday met several separatist leaders including Mirwaiz
Umer Farooq, chairman of the moderate Hurriyat Conference.

The team would also meet Chief Minister Omar Abdullah,
mainstream political leaders, the state chief secretary and
the DGP, Batra said yesterday.
