BBC says it stands by its reporting on Kashmir
The UK-based media house refuted the Indian government’s assertion that its reports on Kashmir were inaccurate or misleading
In a statement, the BBC said that it stands by its report and emphasised that it was covering the situation in the Valley "impartially and accurately".
According to a BBC report, "Despite the unprecedented security lockdown, thousands of people demonstrated in Srinagar and were met with live fire, tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets."
"The BBC stands by its journalism and we strongly refute any claims that we have misrepresented events in KAshmir. We are covering the situation impartially and accurately," the BBC said in a statement.
"Like other broadcasters, we are currently operating under severe restrictions in Kashmir but we will continue to report what is happening," it added.
