New Delhi, 24 May 2022

As per news report of BBC, the Xinjiang Police Files, as they’re being called, were passed to the BBC earlier this year.

Their publication coincides with the recent arrival in China of the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner, Michelle Bachelet, for a controversial visit to Xinjiang, with critics concerned that her itinerary will be under the tight control of the government.
