India on Wednesday raked up the issue of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and said that the country must vacate illegal occupation of a part of Kashmir (PoK).

"Pakistan must rein in its compulsive hostility towards India and fulfil its obligation to vacate illegal occupation of PoK," India's permanent representative at the United Nations Rajiv K Chander said at the UN Human Rights Council session in Geneva.

He said that Jammu and Kashmir has an elected democratic government that represents all sections of the people unlike the situation in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.

"Central problem in Jammu and Kashmir is cross-border terrorism and Pakistan's use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy," Chander added.
