In occupied Kashmir, as the strict military lockdown imposed by the Indian government entered 70th running day, today, the people of Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region continue to suffer immensely.
Amid suspension of mobile and internet services and absence of public transport, the residents are facing acute shortage of basic items of daily use including food and medicines.
The residents continue to close their shops and business establishments as a silent protest against India.
