Farooq Abdullah's Daughter Safia Is In Judicial Custody: J&K Police”

Security authorities said that blocking text messaging would reduce the ability of militants to communicate, according to AFP news agency.

Almost 70 days after the imposition of a complete communications clampdown in Kashmir, the local administration is set to lift curbs on post-paid mobile services in the region later on Monday.

The seven million-plus people of the Kashmir Valley - the main hotbed of resistance to Indian rule - are still cut off from the internet, however.

Earlier on Monday, the authorities in J&K lifted restrictions from the mobile services, but the resumption was limited to voice calls as SMS services were stopped last evening as a precautionary measure, reports claimed.

Top police officer Muneer Ahmed Khan said the masked gunmen hijacked the truck from outside the orchard, where the vehicle was loaded with 800 apple boxes.

Khan said the gunmen set the man's truck on fire and fled from Sindoo Shirmal, a village in southern Kashmir.

A recent report released in New Delhi by Anirudh Kala, Brinelle D'Souza, Revati Laul and Shabnam Hashmi after a visit to occupied Kashmir has testified that Prime Minister Modi and his government's actions in reading down Article 370 and demoting Kashmir to a union territory has eventually proved veteran Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Gilani right that India can not be trusted.

Indian authorities say that militants have been intimidating farmers and businessmen.

The latest death from Pakistani artillery fire over the Line of Control (LoC) dividing Kashmir brings the number of fatalities on the Indian side to three in the past four days, the Press Trust of India reported. Heavy deployment of Indian forces and ban on pre-paid phones and internet services are causing great inconveniences to the people throughout the territory.

Scores of women protesters including sister and daughter of former chief minister and incumbent parliamentarian, Dr. Farooq Abdullah were on Tuesday detained by the authorities after they staged a protest against the abrogation of Article 370 by the central government on August 5.Scores of women assembled at Srinagar's Pratap Park here to stage a sit-in. "India is projecting that Kashmir is happy with the decision".

Union home minister Rajnath Singh reiterated on Tuesday that the constitutional changes were crucial in the "decisive battle against years of proxy war and terror acts perpetrated by our neighbour (Pakistan) and this step will ensure ever-lasting peace in Kashmir and the region".
