NEWDELHI/SRI­NA­GAR: A first-of-it­skind UN re­port on al­leged hu­man rights abuses in Jammu and Kash­mir pro­voked a strong re­ac­tion on Thursday from In­dia, which de­scribed it as “fal­la­cious, ten­den­tious and mo­ti­vated” and a vi­o­la­tion of the coun­try’s sovereignty and ter­ri­to­rial in­tegrity. In the Kash­mir Val­ley, a sep­a­ratist leader wel­comed the re­port, as did Pak­istan’s for­eign of­fice. The Of­fice of the United Na­tions High Com­mis­sioner on Hu­man Rights sought an in­ter­na­tional in­quiry into al­leged abuses.
