INDIAN SPINAL INJURIES CENTER
Directions by National Human Rights Commission, India
Demands of ongoing protest in Delhi, India
1) Pakistan High Commission (PHC) is Delhi has interfered in our medical treatment for at least five months in the hospitals of Delhi due to which the detoxification process could not be carried. PHC personnel has interrupted our privacy and chased us in Delhi, of which we have noticed twice. The Government of India either should ensure that Pakistan / PHC officials would not further interfere in our affairs or we should be allowed to launch an FIR with the Delhi Police. (Since Shah is a UNHCR recognized refugee, therefore Pakistan has no legal right to further persecute the refugee who was earlier forcedly ousted by the Pak security agencies, persecuted and later on poisoned in Kathmandu, Nepal.)
2) Until Indian authorities or the other countries formally offer the refugee resettlement, a secure stay permission in India should be granted.
