The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry has expressed concern at the reports of discriminatory harassment of members of the business community by investigating agencies, said a statement issued by KCCI. 

An emergency executive committee meeting of KCCI was convened on Saturday.  

“The Kashmir Chamber was of the considered view that persons of interest to the investigating agencies were being subjected to harassment by questionable methods of investigation,” the statement said.  "The investigation agencies had turned the principle of “presumption of innocence until proved guilty” on its head by treating all persons of interest in this manner," the statement added.
