Life remains paralysed in IOK on 84th consecutive day today
SRINAGAR (KMS) – In occupied Kashmir, life remains paralysed in Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region on the 84th day, as Kashmiris on both sides of the Line of Control and the world over are observing Black Day, today. Amid call for march towards Lal Chowk, Srinagar, and a sit-in protest by All Parties Hurriyat Conference, today, normal life continues to hit badly due to restrictions and gag on internet and most of cellular services. Internet services across all platforms continue to be snapped across the valley since the night of 4th August hours before India announced its decision to abrogate Article 370 of the Constitution, which gave a special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and bifurcate J&K into two Union territories. Restrictions have been further tightened in the territory in view of the call for the march towards Lal Chowk. The deployment of Indian forces has been increased. People continue to observe shutdown with main markets continue to shut, public transport off the roads and school buildings deserted look without students and staff as a mark of silent protest against India’s illegal action on 5th August.
