July 10, 2024

Authorities in Indian Illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) have intensified restrictions and deployed additional paramilitary troops along the Srinagar-Jammu highway. According to Kashmir Media Service, additional forces from the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and Indian police have been deployed along the highway. Enhanced security measures include increased CCTV camera surveillance, metal detector scans by patrol teams, and drone monitoring of public movement. Additionally, a dog squad has been deployed. “These measures are particularly crucial for Amarnath Yatris,” stated a senior officer. “We have deployed additional forces and implemented strict security protocols to ensure the safe passage of the Amarnath Yatris.” While these actions are purportedly to ensure the safety of Hindu pilgrims, the actual aim is to harass Kashmiri commuters, further exacerbating their hardships.
