The Narendra Modi-led government stripped the IOK of its decades-long special autonomy last month along with imposing severe restrictions including communication blockade and curfew.

According to a statement by the PM Office, the premier briefed Ardern on the plight of Kashmiris and the danger of a massacre in the occupied valley.
