Kashmiris stuggling to survive as India restores lockdown

With a relatively low number of cases, many question the need for such measures.

Many cities in India are going back into lockdown after a record rise in the number of coronavirus cases. India is the third-worst-affected country, with nearly 900,000 cases and more than 23,000 deaths. But the decision to bring back lockdown measures is not being welcomed by many in Indian-administered Kashmir, which had already been facing restrictions since the government revoked the region’s autonomy.
