Kashmir leaders under house arrest as unrest grows – BBC News

Tensions are high in Indian-administered Kashmir amid speculation that a law which grants the state’s residents unique privileges including property rights could be revoked.

Top politicians in Indian-administered Kashmir have been put under house arrest, days after thousands of troops were deployed to the disputed region.

Public meetings have been banned and reports say mobile networks and the internet have been restricted.

Last week authorities also ordered tourists and Hindu pilgrims to leave, citing a “terror threat” against an annual pilgrimage to a major shrine.

It is unclear what is behind the latest moves, which have stoked tensions.
