September 16, 2019

In occupied Kashmir, normal life remained affected for the 43rd consecutive day today due to curfew and communications blackout with massive Indian forces’ fortified and bullet-proof bunkers returning to Srinagar and other parts of the Valley.

Curfew and other restrictions have generated a humanitarian crisis as shortage of daily commodities has hit hard the residents of Kashmir valley.

International human rights watchdog, Human Rights Watch, has urged India to immediately release detained Kashmiris who have not been charged with a recognizable offense.

The global human rights organization said that many detainees had not been allowed to contact their families or lawyers. It also asked the Indian government to release a list of all detainees and their whereabouts.
