In Response, India's permanent mission in Geneva tweeted, "allegations of so-called judicial harassment are 'baseless and unwarranted'. India upholds the rule of law, but is equally clear that no one is above the law. We expect the SRs (Special Rapporteur) to be objectively & accurately informed. Advancing a misleading narrative only tarnishes UNGeneva's reputation".
