10,000 additional Indian army personnel deployed along LoC in Occupied Kashmir

As many as 10,000 army personnel has been deployed by the Indian army on the Line of Control (LoC) in Indian-held Kashmir.

The situation in the valley has still not returned to normal as shutter-down strike and curfew continue to persist on the 77th day.

Heavy security has been deployed to prevent anti-India protests.

At least 117 people have been killed by the Indian army in the ongoing violence in held Kashmir.

Authorities have imposed a curfew in large parts of occupied Kashmir since July 9 during an upsurge in violence sparked by the murder of a top commander called Burhan Wani by Indian security forces.

Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the end of British colonial rule in August 1947 but both claim the territory in full.

Separatist groups fighting Indian troops and police seek either independence or a merger with Pakistan.
