The Indian authorities continued to impose curfew and other restrictions across the occupied Kashmir on the 21st consecutive day

According to Kashmir Media Service, due to the severe blockade, people are facing acute shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines and the valley represents a humanitarian crisis.

The authorities also continue to impose information blockade as TV channels and internet links are snapped and restrictions on media remain in place since 5th of this month. Hundreds of thousands of people are besieged and Jammu and Kashmir has become a big jail for its inhabitants.

Over 10,000 Kashmiris including hundreds of political leaders and workers have been detained. The jails and police stations have run out of space and many detainees have been lodged in makeshift detention centres.
