  • The Congressional Research Service (CRS) in its second report on Kashmir in less than six months also said that Pakistan's ability to alter the status quo through military action has been reduced in recent years, meaning that Islamabad likely must rely primarily on diplomacy.

    The situation in Kashmir violates human rights, a US Congresswoman has said, as she joined as cosponsors to a resolution urging India to end restrictions on communications and mass detentions in the newly-created Union Territory.

    Earlier yesterday, Indira Jaising, through a tweet, had urged Asha Devi to forgive the perpetrators and had used the example of Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi, who had forgiven Nalini, one of the convicts who was given the death penalty by the courts.

    Two weeks ago, Carlos Ghosn made a dramatic escape from house arrest in Japan, where he was awaiting trial on charges of under-reporting earnings, breach of trust and misappropriation of company funds. He denies all charges.

    The lawyer said he told Ghosn he couldn't expect a fair trial in Japan, but his chances of winning were good because the evidence against him was so weak. Japan's judicial system has come under fire over Ghosn's case. Critics have for years said the prolonged detentions tend to coerce false confessions. Suspects can be detained even without any charges.

    Ghosn has become an international fugitive after he revealed on Tuesday he had fled to Lebanon to escape what he called a "rigged" justice system in Japan, where he faces charges relating to alleged financial crimes. Nissan had hired a private security company to watch Ghosn, who was on bail and awaiting trial.

    On the border dispute with China, Manoj Mukund Naravane said, “We have been able to maintain peace and tranquility along borders...we will be able to set the stage for an eventual solution.” He also said that the operational readiness and modernisation of the Army will be among his top priorities.

    India is a vibrant democracy that need to recognise and address to religious freedom and human rights, said a State Department official in the wake of enactment of Citizenship Amendment Act. Pompeo met External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar for a bilateral meeting. Thereafter, they were joined by the Defence Minister Rajnath Singh for 2+2 dialogue.

    Pakistan state-run media said on Sunday that Islamabad may host the meeting in April, although earlier reports said Saudi Arabia, which holds the Presidency of the OIC currently, would play host following an assurance by its foreign minister during a visit to the Pakistani capital last week.

    According to NHRC, it has received a complaint stating patients holding BPL cards are not getting RAN benefits if they availed benefits of AB-PMJAY even if they are suffering from life-threatening diseases - whose expenditure is much more than Rs 5 lakh, the maximum permissible limit under Ayushman Bharat health scheme.
