J&K Chief Secretary: No life has been lost in the state due to abrogation of Article 370, 12 out of 22 districts functioning properly

He said that schools will reopen on Monday and restrictions on telecom and public transport will be lifted gradually

Chief Secretary of Jammu & Kashmir, BVR Subrahmanyam, briefed the media on the situation in the state on Friday. He stated that the measures taken by the government were necessary in light of credible information that terror attacks were being planned in J&K.

Consequently, restrictions on free movement and telecom connectivity, prevention of large gathering, closure of educational institutions and preventive detentions of certain individuals were enforced with the objective of maintaining law and order, he said.

Schools will begin reopening on Monday area by area. Public transport, too, will be made operational. The Chief Secretary added that telecom connectivity will be restored in a phased manner.

Most significantly, Subrahmanyam stated that there have been no loss of life in the region due to the abrogation of Article 370. Moreover, 12 out of 22 districts are functioning properly, he said, with limited restrictions in 5 of them.

The Chief Secretary also stated that preventive detentions are being reviewed and decisions will be made subject to law and order assessments. He asserted that the government wants the earliest return to normalcy while ensuring that terrorists cannot find an opportunity to engage in bloodshed.
