Amnesty International slams India in its rights report | India News – Times of India


LONDON: Amnesty International has released a report slamming India for its “punitive” lockdown in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, as well as its handling of the anti-CAA protests, farmers’ protests, Delhi riots and alleged clampdown on civil liberties in Kashmir, reports Naomi Canton.
The report ,“The State of the World’s Human Rights 2020/2021”, examines the human rights situation in 149 countries.
In the section on India, it said: “There was widespread impunity and lack of accountability for murders and attacks carried out by vigilante mobs and police officers against religious minorities.” On lockdown, it said: “In March, migrant workers were forced by police to crawl, as punishment for breaching norms. The majority of those arrested for violating lockdown norms belonged to marginalised communities.”
