Child rights experts filed a petition in the Supreme Court of India against the illegal detention of children by Indian troops during the ongoing lockdown in the occupied Kashmir.

Eminent child rights expert, Enakshi Ganguly and Professor Shanta Sinha, first Chairperson of the National Commission for Child Rights (NCPCR) have filed the petition stating that there have been reports about the abduction of children by Indian forces’ personnel during house raids in Kashmir.

The petitioners have submitted that there have been certain reports specific to children, which describe violations that include loss of life and liberty and that the reports are serious enough to merit judicial review of the situation with respect to children and to enforce and monitor certain immediate corrective action.
