Newspapers fail to hit the stands in Kashmir Valley
Srinagar: Newspapers on Thursday failed to hit the stands in the Kashmir Valley in the wake of imposition of curfew following violence.
The state government had yesterday cancelled curfew passes for media personnel restricting their movement.
The last time the newspapers did not come out was in 2008 during the height of the Amarnath land agitation. Publication of dailies at that time was suspended for four days.
Newspaper publication had also remained suspended for
days during elections in 1996.
A representative body of major print and electronic journalists in the valley, Kashmir Journalists Corps (KJC), today condemned the restrictions on media persons and said that it was a "direct attack on the fourth estate".
