Kashmir witnesses biggest crackdown in 20 years

According to official figures of the state government, a total of 446 people have been arrested across Jammu and Kashmir in a week. Even as the state government struggles to curb  the protests in the Valley even after 92 days of lock down, the longest in Kashmir’s history, it has launched the biggest crackdown in more than two decades, conducting night-time raids across Kashmir.

Since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8, J-K police have arrested close to 7000 people in the valley while more than 450 people have been booked under the Public Safety Act (PSA), the highest number-ever in the Valley.
