The UN Working Group has termed the arrest of Safoora Zargar a violation of the multilateral treaty & asked India to compensate her as per the law.
This case got the United Nations Working Group's attention, which made public its opinion on the arrest of Zargar. It said that it amounted to a violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights treaty. India is one of the parties to the treaty. The panel said that she should be provided with compensation, and action against those who violated her rights should be initiated. Zargar's detention had no legal basis, the panel said.
