Pakistan on Wednesday handed over a dossier on human rights violations in India-held Kashmir (IHK) to the United Nations General Assembly, Radio Pakistan reported.

The prime minister's special envoys on Kashmir, Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed and Dr. Shezra Mansab Ali, handed over the dossier to UNGA President Peter Thomson in New York.

The envoys briefed the UNGA president about the threat to peace and security posed by the deteriorating situation in held Kashmir.

Senator Mushahid Hussain said India has closed all doors to bilateral dialogue, scuttled a regional summit and refused to implement United Nations Security Council resolutions at the international level.

Dr. Shezra Ali detailed the killings of protesters in Kashmir, and briefed the UNGA president about injuries caused by the use of brute force by Indian forces.

The UNGA president expressed concern at the situation and assured the visiting envoys of every possible effort to foster peace.

He said an update on the current situation from the UN Department of Peace Keeping Operations will also be sought.

Officials of the Department for Peacekeeping Operations briefed the special envoys on the continued non-cooperation by the Indian side which was hampering the mandated work of the UN mission.

Pakistan's permanent representative to the United Nations, Dr Maleeha Lodhi, was also present on the occasion.
