From Greater Kashmir: “Intensified Crackdown on Protestors

“In a major operation to quell the ongoing protests over the civilian killings, police have arrested more than 1000 persons including teenagers in the Valley during past three weeks and booked at least 15 of them under the stringent Public Safety Act.”

“…among other sections, they have been booked under various sections including attempt to murder and rioting. Reports said 500 youth and teenagers have been arrested from Srinagar city alone.”

“In past three weeks, police have made random arrests across the city just to frighten the people. Some youth have been released on bail but most of them are still under arrest,” the inhabitants of Nowhatta said.”
