Washington, January 12, 2020 (PPI-OT): The US State Department has expressed concern over the continued detention of political leaders and restrictions on internet in occupied Jammu and Kashmir. The restrictions were imposed on August 5 last when India abrogated the Article 370 that gave special powers to Jammu and Kashmir.
Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Alice Wells in a tweet said, “We remain concerned by detention of political leaders and residents, and Internet restrictions. We look forward to a return to normalcy.”
