  • India has invited ambassadors of various countries to visit Jammu and Kashmir this week to see for themselves the situation on the ground months after the government withdrew the special status given to the erstwhile state under Article 370 of the Constitution.

    Lieutenant Governor GC Murmu on Tuesday received a 15-point memorandum on socio-economic and political aspiration of people from eight former MLAs led by Altaf Bukhari.

    The Jammu and Kashmir administration released another batch of four politicians from house arrest on Friday, hinting at a possible resurgence of political activity in the Valley.

    Many political leaders in Jammu and Kashmir, including the three former chief ministers, were detained on August 5, the day the Centre announced abrogation of Article 370 provisions and bifurcation of the state into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

    The meeting was held at the NC headquarters, Nawa-i-Subah, and the party's provincial body of Kashmir and the youth and women's wing attended it, NC spokesperson Imran Dar told PTI. He said the meeting was chaired by NC provincial secretary, Kashmir, Showkat Ahmad.

    Internet services continued to remain barred in the entire valley except for few government offices and business establishments, officials said.

    The Kashmiri political leaders including Farooq Abdulalh, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti who have been under detention since August 5 might be released sooner and may be allowed to move out of the valley on health grounds, the government officials said. Some of them were allowed to visit their houses for few hours on Saturday on request.

    "As many as 2,30,418 persons used the internet facilities across 10 districts of Kashmir valley," said the report provided by the Union territory to the home ministry.

    "5,161 preventive arrests, including stone pelters, miscreants, OGWs (overground workers), separatists and political workers were made since August 4, 2019, in Kashmir Valley," MoS home G Kishan Reddy said in a statement in the Rajya Sabha.

    The name of the 81-year-old former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah and National Conference leader, in detention at his Srinagar home for over 100 days, tops the list of members of the 21-member consultative committee on defence headed by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

    "The train service on Srinagar-Banihal route will resume on Sunday and it is being restored for the public fully for the first time after it was suspended due to security reasons," a railway official said. Train services in the valley were suspended on August 3, ahead of the Centre's decision to abrogate Article 370.

    “Election will come. It is a Union territory with a legislature, it will not continue like this (LG's rule). The process for holding the election will come soon,” Murmu said, speaking at the attestation-cum-passing out parade of the 14th batch of constables, held in the Talwara area of Reasi district.
