SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, people of the valley and Muslim-majority areas of Jammu continue to suffer immensely due to military siege on the 101st consecutive day, today.
Yesterday, Indian troops martyred two Kashmiri youth in Ganderbal district, raising the toll to four in the past couple of days in the occupied territory.
The residents are suffering immensely due to the suspension of internet and prepaid mobile services.
More than three months after the Indian government revoked the special status of occupied Kashmir, cut off internet service and censored media coverage of the situation, isolated reports from the territory indicated that the situation remained tense with a continuing heavy military presence.
In Srinagar, shops open only for a few hours early in the morning because of the atmosphere of fear and intimidation, with people mainly staying indoors.
Moreover, drones are flying above the residents’ homes, the army is deployed at every corner, and they have already arrested thousands of young men to preempt them from potential agitation.
