As restrictions imposed in the wake of scrapping Article 370 continued for another day in Kashmir, high drama unfolded throughout Thursday.
While the day ended on a good note with PM Modi’s speech, declaring a new era of development in Jammu and Kashmir, it saw heightened hostility from Pakistan leaders, who have opposed the abrogation of Article 370 that grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan stopped Samjhauta Express before it crossed the Wagah border and asked India to send its own crew to escort the passengers across the international border. Meanwhile, there were also reports that over 500 political workers and leaders were detained in Kashmir in the wake of the restrictions.
