In occupied Kashmir, normal life remains crippled on the 76th consecutive day, today (Saturday) as people continue to suffer immensely due to strict military siege imposed by India.
Restrictions and gag on internet and mobile services continue in the Kashmir Valley and parts of Jammu region.
Shops and business establishments remain closed most of the time except for few hours in the morning and evening and public transport is off the roads.
The Indian authorities have tried to hoodwink the world community about the prevailing situation in the territory by announcing opening of educational institutions but failed in their designs as parents are reluctant to send their children to schools, colleges and universities fearing their safety.
The authorities have also deputed magistrates in educational institutions across occupied Kashmir to monitor the activities of students.
