Fearing dissent from people, the government not only barred connectivity, but also detained hundreds including three former chief ministers of the Union territory and imposed a strict curfew.
While Omar Abdullah and his father were released recently, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti along with hundreds of others continue to remain under detention.
