India revokes Kashmir's special status: All the latest updates

Thousands arrested under controversial Public Safety Act and flown out of Kashmir as jails run out of capacity.

 

"The Indian government has revoked the special status of Indian-administered Kashmir in its constitution, the most far-reaching political move on the disputed region in nearly 70 years.

A presidential decree issued on August 5 revoked Article 370 of India's constitution that guaranteed special rights to the Muslim-majority state, including the right to its own constitution and autonomy to make laws on all matters, except defence, communications and foreign affairs........

The move has worsened the already-heightened tensions with neighbouring Pakistan, which said it would downgrade its diplomatic relations with India.

A rebellion in Indian-administered Kashmir has been ongoing for three decades.
