Virtually authorities have turned Kashmir into a battle field, subjecting civilians to worst treatment” and their fundamental rights are being “disregarded and trampled.

” Targeting business hub and busy areas is a deep conspiracy, Hurriyat said and terming it as “sheer lawlessness.” Carrying searches of commercial establishments and frisking commuters is having detrimental effect on business activities in crowded market place in Lal Chowk, said Hurriyat and expressing deep anguish, added that even vehicles parked there were also searched, and many mobile phones of commuters were also checked.
