Earlier at a high-level UN General Assembly (UNGA) debate on "Human Rights at the Centre of the Global Agenda", Pakistan's Permanent Representative Maleeha Lodhi accused India of human rights violations in Kashmir and of carrying out an "extra-judicial killing of a person" she described as a "Kashmiri leader". Roaming freely in Pakistan, despite a $10 million bounty on his head, one of India's most wanted men, Hafiz Saeed warns of demonstrations countrywide to force Pakistan to sever all ties with the United States if it can not convince Washington to intervene in the decades old Kashmir dispute.
Police said most of those who died were protesters killed by gunshot wounds as Indian government troops fired live ammunition and tear gas to try to enforce a curfew imposed across the Kashmir Valley.
India's ambassador to the UN, Syed Akbaruddin, said that Pakistan as a country "covets the territory of others and uses terrorism as state policy towards that misguided end", reported NDTV.
"India cannot call the present situation of IHK an internal matter", Foreign Office (FO) Spokesman Nafees Zakaria said at a press briefing.
According to Indian media reports, last year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is closely aligned to the Hindu nationalist right, also pledged 800 billion rupees in investment there.
Akbaruddin said it is regrettable that Pakistan attempted to "misuse" the United Nations platform by raising the Kashmir issue. Lodhi said the situation in Kashmir should be of grave concern to the global community as it poses a threat to peace and security and called the use of excessive force against civilians "exceedingly deplorable and condemnable".
Foreign Office Spokesman said Pakistan is effectively taking up the issue with the global community including OIC.
Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed's account "HafizSaeedLive" has been suspended by online social networking service Twitter for posting about the ongoing protests in Kashmir valley and the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani frequently.
India on Monday urged Pakistan to refrain from interfering in the internal affairs of its neighbours.
