Life in occupied Kashmir remains paralyzed for 44th day


SRINAGAR (DNA) – Life in India-occupied Kachmir (IoK) remains paralyzed on Tuesday as the Indian curfew in the held valley has entered 44th consecutive day with massive Indian forces’ fortified and bullet-proof bunkers returning to Srinagar and other parts of IoK.

According to Kashmir Media Service, curfew and other restrictions have generated a humanitarian crisis as shortage of daily commodities has hit hard the residents of Kashmir valley and parts of Jammu region. All shops remained shut and public transport was off the roads. Education, too, has taken the worst beating because of the military clampdown.

A global rights body called on the Indian government to immediately release detained people in occupied Kashmir.

“Indian authorities should immediately release detained Kashmiris who have not been charged with a recognizable offense,” Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in a statement.
