UN chief says he is monitoring worsening situation in occupied Kashmir

New York (Web Desk): The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that he is monitoring the worsening situation in Indian occupied Kashmir, the Radio Pakistan reported.


In a statement, a spokesman to UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric said that we obviously continue to follow the situation very closely in Jammu and Kashmir, especially tightening restrictions and mass arrests.

He said that reports of restrictions in the Indian-administered side of the line of control (LoC) are also under observation.

The relation between the nuclear-armed neighbouring countries escalated after Indian authorities had imposed curfew in occupied Kashmir since August 5 when New Delhi revoked Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which conferred it a special status.
