Kashmir Curfew: Normal life remains crippled on the 67th day

Thursday 10th October, 2019

Normal life remained crippled in occupied Kashmir valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region due to continued military siege on the 67th consecutive day (today).

Kashmir Media Service reported that people continue to face immense hardships due to the heavy presence of Indian troops in every nook and corner and suspension of means of communication.

All shops, main markets and educational institutions continue to remain shut and public transport off the road in Kashmir valley as a mark of silent protest against the repeal of the special status of the territory by India.

Meanwhile, India’s investigating agency Enforcement Directorate has seized the property of illegally detained senior APHC leader and the Chairman of Jammu and Kashmir Democratic Freedom Party, Shabbir Ahmed Shah.

The residents of Kashmir valley are facing severe hardships due to shortage of essential commodities due to continued blockade and fast approaching winter.

Most of the interiors in Srinagar’s old city continue to remain sealed with iron barricades and concertina wire while deployment of police and paramilitary forces is intact in the city and all major towns and villages across the Kashmir valley.

The clampdown has not only affected inter-district road connectivity drastically, but has also thrown great challenges for old city residents due to shutting of factories, industries and other work places.

Meanwhile, at least five persons were injured after unknown persons hurled a grenade towards the deputy commissioner’s building in Islamabad district.

The All Parties Hurriyat Conference Azad Jammu and Kashmir chapter at a meeting in Islamabad strongly condemned the continued lockdown and communication blockade by the Indian government in occupied Kashmir.
