India likely to vote against Sri Lanka at UN Human Rights Council: Sources

New Delhi: India is likely to vote against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council later in March, sources said on Tuesday. The US-sponsored resolution is like to be "procedural" and will not be "intrusive remedy", the sources added.

Experts say that the reason why India may vote against its neighbouring country is because it feels Sri Lanka has not adequately met its own assurances made to the international community.

Secondly, India will not accept an "intrusive" resolution and this resolution is not expected to seek international monitoring of Sri Lanka's efforts.

Thirdly, India is mindful of political sentiment in Tamil Nadu.
