New Delhi: Human rights organisation Amnesty International India on Tuesday announced that it will be halting its operations in the country and said it had to let go of its staff and pause all its ongoing campaign and research work.

In a press statement, Amnesty said “the complete freezing of Amnesty International India’s bank accounts by the government of India, which it came to know on 10 September, brings all the work being done by the organization to a grinding halt.” The organisation said it had been compelled to let go of staff in India and pause all its ongoing campaign and research work.

“This is the latest in the incessant witch-hunt of human rights organizations by the government of India over unfounded and motivated allegations,” said Amnesty, claiming that it had complied with all Indian and international laws.
