Teens swept up in night raids in Kashmir clampdownAli Mohammad Rah sat on the pavement outside a police station in Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar on Tuesday, waiting to see his teenage sons, who were swept up in government raids overnight. Government sources say at least 4,000 people have been detained in Kashmir since India revoked the restive Himalayan region’s autonomy on August 5 and imposed a massive security lockdown on the restive region. To try and stop the raids, residents in Srinagar’s Soura area have erected barricades and dug trenches in roads that lead to their cluster of homes.
