Pakistan FM Dials UN Secretary-General; Complaints Of Deteriorating Situation In Kashmir

As the Indian government’s lockdown of Jammu and Kashmir, especially the Muslim dominated Kashmir Valley continued for the 25th consecutive day on Thursday, hundreds of Kashmiris reportedly defied the restrictions and took to the streets to stage resentment against New Delhi.

Indian troops and police personnel are aggressively trying to curb the violent protest that have been emanating from the Kashmir valley.
