SHAFAQNA-The regional administration of Indian-administered Kashmir on Monday sealed the office of Kashmir Times , one of the oldest newspapers in the region. Anuradha Bhasin, the owner and executive editor of Kashmir Times, told Al Jazeera “No notice was given to us,” she said. “They [estates department officials] just came. Our staff was working in the office. They asked the staff to come out, saying they were putting a lock.”
Earlier this month, Bhasin alleged she was evicted from her official residence in Jammu city. She said the sealing of her office was “vendetta politics” and an “attempt to suppress [her]” by the Indian administration, AlJazeera reported.
