United Nations 'dismayed' at India arrests, NGO restrictions

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, on Tuesday expressed concern over use of Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) to constrain the activities of the non-government organisations in India.

The statement from the top UN human rights official came days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government froze the bank accounts of the Amnesty International and the organisation had to shut down its operations in India. New Delhi, however, dismissed the statement, with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) stating that violation of law by the NGOs could not be condoned under the pretext of human rights.
