Is India cracking down on journalism in Kashmir? – BBC News

India’s supreme court is currently hearing an important case about the legality of the revocation of Indian-administered Kashmir’s special status in 2019.

Since the change which gave the Indian national government political control of Kashmir, journalists allege the administration is carrying out a systematic and sinister campaign of arrests and intimidation aimed at silencing the press in the region.

The BBC has spoken to more than two dozen journalists for this investigation. The Indian government says there is absolute press freedom in Kashmir. Our South Asia correspondent Yogita Limaye reports from Srinagar.
