SRINAGAR: For over a month today (Wednesday), Indian troops are keeping Kashmir besieged with the curfew and strict communication blockage.
The valley remains cut off from the rest of the world since August 5, when the Bhartia Janta Party (BJP) led Indian government scraped special status of the held valley.
The curfew and communication blackout continues in the Kashmir valley on the 31th consecutive day, today, where people are facing acute shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines.
According to Kashmir Media Service (KMS) occupation forces have martyred 16 Kashmiris in the month of August and injured 467 with air-gun.
Over 10,000 arrested have been booked under draconian law, Public Safety Act (PSA) since the repeal of the special status of territory by the Indian government on 5th August.
Those detained under PSA include Hurriyat leaders, political workers, traders, lawyers, social activists, and youth.
Meanwhile, after getting a number of Twitter accounts blocked, the Indian agencies are scanning over 3,500 Facebook and Whatsapp pages.
Indian troops in their unabated state terrorism subjected thousands of Kashmiris to custodial disappearance during the last twenty-nine years and the families of the victims have no information about their whereabouts.
