“During the meeting Naqshbandi thanked the High Commissioner on behalf of APHC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, and people of Kashmir for her statement during 39th session of Human rights Council at Geneva,” he said.

Hurriyat Conference (M) on Saturday urged UN to inquire alleged human rights violations in Kashmir.

In a statement, Hurriyat spokesperson said its convener Syed Faiz Naqshbandi said he urged UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet during a meeting at the sidelines of 39th session of UN Human Rights Council in Geneva  to inquire into the alleged rights violation in  Kashmir.

“During the meeting Naqshbandi thanked the High Commissioner on behalf of APHC chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, and people of Kashmir for her statement during 39th session of Human rights Council at Geneva,” he said.

 “The APHC convener told High Commissioner that her statement and the report of Human Rights Commissioner on the situation of Jammu and Kashmir, has given a hope to the Kashmiri people that OHCHR cares for the dignity and rights of the Kashmiri people,” he added.

He said: “But sadly New Delhi has failed to show any respect to this report, instead increased its military repression.”

Meanwhile, the spokesman paid rich tributes to five militants killed in a gunfight with forces  in Bandipora.
