A special court in Srinagar on Tuesday framed charges against eight leaders of Hurriyat Conference and their aides in a scam involving the admission of Jammu and Kashmir residents into professional courses in Pakistan
The agency has arrested Abdul Aala Fazili for writing a "highly provocative, seditious" article titled “The shackles of slavery will break” in a controversial monthly digital magazine 'The Kashmir Wala'
Apart from the administration having to shut down the Srinagar Press Club over security concerns this year, a number of avowed journalists have faced a crackdown in recent months over alleged anti-India activities
The employees are J&K police constable Tawseef Ahmed Mir, Baramulla police constable Shahid Hussain Rather, Srinagar computer operator Ghulam Hassan Parray, Awantipora teacher Arshid Ahmad Das, and nursing orderly of Kupwara health department Sharafat Ali Khan
Sources within the Bharatiya Janata Party say that Khan will be given a 'very important assignment' within the outfit as the leadership of the party in Jammu and Kashmir has already started preparations for assembly elections
