Washigton: United States (US) lawmakers have written a letter to Indian Ambassador to the US ‘Harsh Vardhan Shringla’ stressing about the conditions in Indian held Kashmir.
According to details, Congress members asked about the transparent details behind the communication ban in held Kashmir and how are the kidnapped Kashmiris being treated there.
“We believe true transparency can only be achieved when journalists and Members of Congress are allowed free access to the region. We encourage India to open Jammu and Kashmir to both domestic and foreign journalists, and other international visitors, in the interest of open media and increased communication,” the congressmen said in the letter.
The letter also asked about the number of people detained under the Public Safety Act or other legal provisions since August 5 and asked Indian ambassador (Sringla) to be as specific as possible.
