Occupied Kashmir without Internet, under curfew on 170th consecutive day


SRINAGAR: The people of occupied Kashmir are under military curfew and without Internet facility on the 170th consecutive day here on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, the Supreme Court of India had directed the authorities to review all the restrictions imposed in the occupied Kashmir.

The court issued this order while hearing the petitions that challenged the Indian government’s restrictions imposed on movement and communication in the valley.

On Aug 5, India had abrogated Article 370 withdrawing special status given to occupied Kashmir.

The government had imposed the military curfew and communication blackout in the occupied Kashmir.
