Kashmir: Cemeteries

Volume 477: debated on Friday 13 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what discussions he has had with the government of India on the removal of bodies from mass graves in Indian-held Kashmir. (209967)

We have not raised the removal of bodies from mass graves in Indian administered Kashmir with the Government of India. However, we have called for an improvement in the human rights situation on both sides of the Line of Control and remain concerned over reports of human rights violations, including continuing allegations of human rights violations by Indian security forces.
