WASHINGTON — The International Crisis Group (ICG) has urged India’s international allies to “strongly encourage it to restore Kashmiri statehood, free detained politicians, and end security forces’ abuses against civilians”.

The ICG, a global think tank, advises India in its new report to re-engage with J&K’s political class and end security forces’ abuses in the valley and urges New Delhi’s “international partners should press it in that direction,” reports Dawn.

The report — “Raising the Stakes in Jammu and Kashmir” — warns that India’s recent actions have increased the “risks of an incident setting off an unintended military escalation” bet­ween the region’s two nuclear powers.
