Indian state seizes hospitals and medical centers in Kashmir, denying people of avenues of healthcare

On February 12th, the Indian state seized and shut almost 45 properties, and demolished two properties, in Banihal, most of which were either pharmacies or medical diagnostic centers. While the state claimed that the demolition of the properties was carried out because they were built on “state-land”, Amnesty International and other human rights organizations have argued that the ongoing demolitions appear to be an extension of the brutal human rights violations in the region of Jammu and Kashmir, a case of dispossession through demolitions[7].
