Britain on Thursday said it was aware of “particular concerns” over violence against women and girls in India during a review of the global human rights situation in 2015.
It also listed 30 nations as “human rights priority countries” where it plans to “prioritise engagement”. India does not figure in the list that includes Myanmar, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
The annual human rights report released by the Foreign Office said Britain is committed to working with the Indian government on violence against women and girls.
“We are aware of the particular concerns around violence against women and girls in India…We welcome the steps the Indian government has already taken, such as fast-track courts and public safety measures,” it said.
