Srinagar, December 23 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, normal life remains crippled in the Kashmir Valley and Muslim majority areas of Jammu region due to continued military siege and lockdown on the 141st consecutive day, today.

A leading local traders’ group, Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in its report revealed that over 100,000 jobs had been shed due to ban on Internet. Losing online access has also affected the healthcare sector, cutting off the ability of patients and doctors to conduct consultations.
