Private properties hired to accommodate detainees in IOK » Kashmir Media Service

Srinagar, August 16 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, after massive crackdown against political leaders and activists by the Indian authorities following the abrogation of Article 370, there is no further space in jails and police stations to lodge the detainees.

Around a thousand detentions have compelled the authorities to hire private properties to accommodate the arrested persons.

Reports said at least 560 such workers have been lodged in makeshift detention centres in Srinagar, Baramulla and Gurez.

Reports said, the police also Hurriyat leader, activists and youth in large numbers to prevent protest demonstrations against the repeal of Article 370.

The police have not made public the number of detainees, but media reports suggest that the numbers were high and that was what led to the hiring of private properties as detention centres. These include guest houses, small hotels and even residential properties.
