India is deploying over 28,000 more paramilitary troops in the occupied Kashmir to suppress the Kashmiris’ ongoing struggle for securing freedom from its illegal occupation.

These additional troops are being sent to Indian held Kashmir less than a week after New Delhi moved 10,000 army soldiers to the territory.

According to details, over 280 companies of paramilitary forces are being deployed in the Kashmir valley.

The paramilitary troops are being deployed in Srinagar and other parts of the valley.

However, no reason was given for the sudden deployment of over 280 companies (28,000 troops), the sources said.

The decision to send the troops came after India’s National Security Adviser returned from a two-day visit to the Kashmir valley, last week.

Media reports quoting official sources said that he met senior officers and reviewed the situation in the territory, which is still under President’s Rule.

Local residents have started panic-buying essentials as they are linking the deployment of troops to the apprehension of deterioration in the situation in the territory.
