Occupied Kashmir Under Lockdown

In Occupied Kashmir, life continued to remain paralyzed as the unprecedented lockdown entered its 42nd day, today, with schools, markets and other business establishments closed and public transport off the roads.

Communication links including mobile and internet services and TV channels are snapped in the entire Kashmir valley and areas of Jammu region since 5th of August, the day India scrapped Kashmir’s special status.

Curfew and communication blockade continue to take a heavy toll on the lives of all residents irrespective of caste, age, gender and creed.

They are facing shortage of food stuff, milk, life-saving drugs and other commodities. According to doctors at Soura hospital, Srinagar, more than six patients die in the hospital on daily basis specifically due to the lockdown-generated issues.
