UN Chief Urges India to ‘Immediately End’ Use of Torture, Pellet Guns Against Children

UNITED NATIONS – UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed grave concern at the continued use of pellet guns by Indian security forces in Jammu and Kashmir against children, and he has asked New Delhi to “immediately terminate” such practices.
Guterres appealed in the annual report on Children and Armed Conflict, which was presented Monday by his Special Representative on the subject, Virginia Gamba.
“I am concerned about the detention of children, including their arrest during night raids, internment in military camps, torture in detention and detention without charge or due process, and I urge the (Indian) government to end this practice immediately,” he said.
Regarding the atrocities committed against children in Kashmir, the report says that the United Nations verified the murder (8) and the mutilation (7) of 15 children (thirteen boys, two girls), between the ages of 1 and 17 years. During the joint operations of the Central Reserve Police Force, the Indian Army (Rifles Rashtriya) and the Jammu-Kashmir Police Special Operations Group.
“Most of the victims in Jammu and Kashmir were primarily effected by torture in detention, and shooting with pellet guns.”
The report cites in particular 68 cases in which the Indian security services of Jammu and Kashmir have detained children between the ages of 9 and 17 on charges related to national security, for alleged association with armed groups.
“I remain concerned about child victims in Jammu and Kashmir and call on the government to take preventive measures to protect children, including by ending the use of pills against children,” said the secretary-general.
Diplomats noted that the Secretary-General’s report had abolished India’s false narrative of normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir, exposing its severe violations of international humanitarian law, war crimes and human rights violations in the disputed region.
On the other hand, the UN chief welcomed and recognized in the same report the efforts of the Pakistani government to protect workers from polio.
The report also notes with appreciation the overall decline in the number of attacks on children in the country.
