India deployed thousands of additional troops to head off protests against its illegal action, besides imposing severe restrictions including curfew and communication blockade which are still enforced.
Pakistan responded sharply to the move by downgrading diplomatic ties with India and suspending trade with New Delhi. There has no contact between the two nations ever since.
