CNn Report Expose the Indian Army Brutality in Kashmir The Kashmir Reader, an English language daily, was ordered to stop publishing on Sunday after weeks of unrest.

Rights groups said the move was an attack on the freedom of the press.

More than 80 people have been killed in clashes between protesters and security forces and thousands more have been injured in Kashmir since July.

The protests were sparked by the killing of a popular militant leader Burhan Wani.

The paper’s editor said police had come to its office on Sunday carrying an order from local authorities for them to stop publishing. The newspaper ceased publication on Monday.
