Interlocutors to study Amnesty report on Kashmir Last Updated : 22 Mar 2011 11:07:57 AM IST Jammu and Kashmir Interlocutors (File photo)
Jammu and Kashmir interlocutors will study the Amnesty report on Kashmir before submitting an initial report to the Centre next month which will contain the recommendations and broad contours for resolution of the Kashmir issue.
After the Amnesty International has asked India to stop human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir, the central government-appointed interlocutors on Jammu and Kashmir will study rights watchdog Amnesty International's report under the Public Safety Act.
The Amnesty International report on Kashmir has been released at a time when interlocutors are working to find out and suggest measures to bring to an end human rights violations in the state
A source close to interlocutors said that "Human rights abuses is one of the major concerns of the interlocutors and they have already made their concerns known in public."
Amnesty International has asked India to revoke a controversial law under which suspects are held in prison "for years without trial".A 70-page report focuses on the Jammu and Kashmir Public Safety Act (PSA), terming it a "lawless law".
"They would be closely studying the Amnesty report on the human rights abuses in Kashmir," the source said.
Interlocutors Dileep Padgaonkar, Radha Kumar and M.M. Ansari were appointed to study the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
A group of interlocutors was appointed to facilitate a continuous dialogue with all sections of the people of the state.Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said that there is no way forward but sustained dialogue and the resolution of all problems under a constitutional framework that I believe has the flexibility to accommodate honourable and durable solutions for all."
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.
Between January and September 2010, "322 people were reportedly detained under the controversial act that empowers district magistrates to detain people for up to two years for suspected offences ranging from anti-state activities to timber smuggling".
