A Kashmir rights group described the communications blackout imposed by India following last year’s scrapping of the disputed region’s semi-autonomy as “collective punishment” and urged the international community to take action.
TRT World takes a look at events that have taken place a year after India's annexation of the former semi-autonomous state of Kashmir.
The Supreme Court ordered New Delhi to restore essential internet services in India-administered Kashmir and to review of restrictions within seven days.
Muhammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi is Pakistan's Ambassador to Turkey.
Governor Satya Pal Malik told Times of India restrictions on movement in the Muslim-majority region will be relaxed after Thursday. A communications blackout imposed by New Delhi after stripping Kashmir of constitutional autonomy will continue.
Indian authorities continued to impose a communications blackout on Kashmir for a fifth straight day although they said they will ease the curfew so that the Muslim-majority population can attend Friday prayers.
Kashmiri bodies have always been used as a battleground for Indian forces in the region and the latest move from India comes with the looming threat of further violations.
Indian security agencies arrested hundreds of people and cut the disputed area off from all communication after India scrapped a law key to Kashmir's autonomy. This escalated tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad which both claim Kashmir in full.
A new report that details the extent of violence against children in Jammu and Kashmir suggests that Indian armed forces have directly targeted children.
In the latest case, the child's body was found on a building site in Uttar Pradesh state, as public outrage and protests grow over horrific crimes against women and minors.
A lawyer for the accused said the men have pleaded not guilty and are willing to take a lie-detector test. The court adjourned the case for procedural reasons until April 28.
The seven-decade dispute over Kashmir has become a humanitarian nightmare, the cause of three wars between nuclear rivals Pakistan and India, and the reason for an ongoing armed rebellion against New Delhi's rule.
