The report, “The State of Human Rights in the World 2020/2021”, examines the human rights situation in 149 countries.
In the section on India, it said: “There was widespread impunity and lack of accountability for killings and attacks carried out by vigilante mobs and police against religious minorities.” About the lockdown, he said: “In March, the police forced migrant workers to crawl, as punishment for violating the rules. Most of those arrested for violating the rules of confinement belonged to marginalized communities ”.
