Kashmiri human rights leader Khurram Parvez arrested in Srinagar


Khurram Parvez

Prominent Kashmiri human rights activist Khurram Parvez was arrested by police at his home in Srinagar only hours after returning from Delhi, India where officials prevented him from boarding a plane to attend the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva.

It’s too early to know what police intend or how long they will detain him but we should be on the ready for a defense campaign demanding his immediate release if that becomes necessary.
