Indian authorities have imposed strict restrictions in occupied Kashmir and have placed former chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah under house arrest.

The move has aggravated the situation in the occupied territory and the leaders have expressed fears that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government may try to withdraw decades-old special rights conferred on the state.

Regarding the resolution to end the special status of occupied Kashmir, Mufti said that the move was illegal and unconstitutional.
