Military lockdown enters 122nd consecutive day in IOK

SRINAGAR: Situation continues to remain almost unchanged in the Indian Occupied Kashmir on the 122nd day of lockdown and military siege.
Having scrapped the IoK special status, the Indian government is now planning to further erode the Muslim-majority character of the territory by carving out new administrative divisions from the newly-formed union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
There is a shortage of food and medicines, while heavy snowfall has multiplied the miseries of the hapless Kashmiri people.
