Published

on

Members of the European Union (EU) Parliament have called for trade and travel ban on India over the distressing human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir. Earlier on August 5, the Indian Government led by PM Narendra Modi had removed the constitutional autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir and imposed a curfew and communication blockade in the valley to curb violent protests.

According to reports, the Co-Chair of the Friends of Kashmir Group in the EU parliament, Richard Corbett, called for employing all possible means to pressurize New Delhi to relieve the curfew in the volatile region.

Corbett proposed the imposition of trade sanctions on India and constraints on the travel of those involved in committing human rights violations and acts of terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.
