Kashmir in panic after India orders tourists to leave

Authorities in the Indian-controlled Kashmir have called on tourists to immediately leave the disputed Himalayan region, raising fears of a new crackdown.

The Jammu and Kashmir government said in an unprecedented order on Friday that tourists should cut short their stay in the region and return as soon as possible because of “intelligence inputs of terror threats” against a huge Hindu pilgrimage and “the prevailing security situation.”

In a joint press conference, the Indian army and the state police said there were “confirmed intelligence reports” claiming that terrorists backed by Pakistan were trying to disrupt the Amarnath Yatra pilgrimage.
