NEW DELHI  – Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif had written to the UN urging the probe after another upsurge in violence in Indian-occupied Kashmir. This time protests and a heavy handed crackdown have followed the killing of Burhan Wani, a popular Kashmiri freedom fighter, by Indian security forces. At least 63 people have been killed after Indian security forces fired live ammunition into protesters. A curfew has now been in place for over 34 days. India has also fired over 1.3 million pellets during this round of protests. India regards the long standing Kashmir dispute as an internal matter and accuses Pakistan of interference.
