    Holding laptops in hands, Kashmiri journalists stage a symbolic protest at Press Club against the suspension of internet services by the authorities. It is 100 days since the clampdown on Kashmir after the abrogation of Article 370, and while some mobile services have been partially restored, the Valley remains cut off from the world.

    Journalists are finding it difficult to function, and while many remained indoors some scribes came out to protest with their unconnected laptops.
