J&K Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) president Mehbooba Mufti on Monday said the United Nations had to step in as “India’s own institutions had stopped taking notice of human rights violations”.

Mehbooba said anyone who raised voice against the wrong measures of the government was labelled as Pakistani agent. “A pity that our own institutions have stopped taking notice of such brazen human rights violations and instead the UN has to step in,” the former CM said in a tweet.

She was referring to a police chargesheet against Peoples Democratic Party youth wing president Waheed Para that alleged that he was an asset of Pakistan-based terror groups. Mehbooba’s tweet was also in reference to reports that some UN rapporteurs had raised the issue of Para’s arrest by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for his alleged links to terror groups. — PTI
