The officials who were denied visas include two former lieutenant generals, three former brigadiers and two former officials of an Indian intelligence agency. The Canadian immigration department said that visa requests are being denied because of the situation created by the Indian army in the disputed territory.
On the other hand, in occupied Kashmir, the authorities continue to impose strict curfew and other restrictions across the Kashmir valley and at least five districts of Jammu region on the 18th consecutive day. Thousands of people flouting curfew and other restrictions took to streets, at least, at 47 places across the territory and staged protest demonstrations against illegal Indian occupation and the abrogation of Article 370 by the Indian government.
