Interlocutors to study Amnesty report on Kashmir

The Central government-appointed interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir will study rights watchdog Amnesty International`s report alleging human rights abuses in the state under the Public Safety Act, informed sources said.



Jammu: The Central government-appointed interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir will study rights watchdog Amnesty International`s report alleging human rights abuses in the state under the Public Safety Act, informed sources said.

"Human rights abuses is one of the major concerns of the interlocutors and they have already made their concerns known in public," a source close to the interlocutors said.

"They would be closely studying the Amnesty report on the human rights abuses in Kashmir," the source said.

Interlocutors Dileep Padgaonkar, Radha Kumar and MM Ansari were appointed to study the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

In their report to the Central government, they have expressed "serious concern" over alleged human rights abuses in Kashmir, where people were arrested on charges of stone-pelting and some booked under the Public Safety Act under which they were put in jail without trial for two years.

The Amnesty International report on Kashmir, released in Srinagar on Monday, coincided with the time when interlocutors are working to find out and suggest measures to bring to an end human rights violations in the state, the source said.
