No comments

The Home Ministry on Saturday dismissed reports of over 10,000 demonstrators protesting against the removal of Kashmir's special status. The ministry said there were demonstrations in some places but no more than 20 people were present at all.

The ministry has rejected a report published by Reuters that tear gas and pellets were used against tens of thousands of protesters. The report was about a protest march after Friday prayers. Meanwhile, the ban was imposed in five districts of Jammu and Kashmir. The ban was lifted in Jammu, Katwa, Samba, Udhampur and Reesi. Schools and colleges have started functioning in these areas.
