Soldiers of India and Pakistan clashed in the control zone of Jamu and Kashmir this weekend, reports DW, citing AFP.
AFP presents the data of the Armed Forces of India. Based on the data, an Indian serviceman was killed on August 17. Moreover, there were dozens of armed clashes in Srinagar, leaving at least eight people injured.
Citing its sources, AFP reports that at least 4,000 people have been arrested under the charge of violating the law on public safety, and most of them have been transported from Kashmir since the local prisons are overcrowded, reports AFP.
On August 7, Pakistani authorities lowered the level of diplomatic relations with India when the latter annulled the special status of Jamu and Kashmir.
