Army Chief Gen. Bipin Rawat today slammed the UN report on alleged human rights violations in Kashmir, dubbing it as "motivated".

The human rights record of the Indian Army, he said, was well known to the people of Kashmir and to the international community.

"I don't need to speak about the human rights record of the Indian Army. It is well known to all of you, it is well known to the people of Kashmir, and to the international community. I don't think we should get too concerned about the report, some of these reports are motivated," Rawat told reporters on the sidelines of an event here.

The human rights record of the Indian Army is absolutely above board, he maintained.

In a report released earlier this month, the United Nations Human Rights Council talked about human rights violations in Kashmir and sought an international inquiry into these abuses.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) had said that the report was "overtly prejudiced" and seeks to build a "false narrative".
