US REPORT ON JUDICIAL KILLING AND ARBITRARY ARRESTS IN INDIA

Will the Minister of EXTERNAL AFFAIRS be pleased to state:

(a) whether it is a fact that United States (US) Rights report slams India for extra judicial killings and arbitrary arrests, if so, the details thereof; and

(b) whether it is also a fact that Government has made any protest against such report, if so, the details thereof?

ANSWER
THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS
[GEN. (DR) V. K. SINGH (RETD)]


(a) & (b) On 13 April 2016, the US Department of State issued its 2015 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 199 countries and territories, including India. The country report on India makes allegations regarding certain instances of violation of human rights in India.

The Indian Constitution guarantees fundamental rights to all its citizens. Any instances of abuse of human rights are addressed by our internal processes which include independent judiciary, vibrant press, civil society and National Human Rights Commission. India does not take cognizance of internal reports of a foreign country.
