Amnesty International has called for restoration of complete internet service in occupied Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of Coronavirus.

In a tweet, the UK based human rights group said it must be ensured that the people of the territory have full access to the health and safety related information.

The organization noted that there is a growing anxiety around the Coronavirus pandemic and unwarranted restrictions on content and dissemination of information only stands to add to the panic.

It said the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir have the right to remain informed of threats to their health.
