Former IoK chief ministers Mufti, Abdullah placed under house arrest; curfew-like restrictions imposed
[DAWN] Indian government placed under house arrest the former chief ministers of Indian-Indian Kashmiree (IoK), Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti, late Sunday night and imposed curfew-like restrictions in the restive region.

"There shall be no movement of public. All educational institutions shall also remain closed. There will be a complete bar on holding any kind of public meetings or rallies during the period of operation of this order. Identity cards of essential services officials will be treated as movement passes wherever required," reads the Indian government order, but says "there is no curfew in place".

According to Greater Kashmire and Indian media, authorities also suspended internet services on cellphones, a common tactic to prevent anti-India demonstrations from being organised and stop dissemination of news.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to chair a national security meeting today [Monday].
