New Delhi: Activists who visited Jammu and Kashmir claimed that Press Club of India (PCI) did not allow them to screen the footage they had recorded in the valley.

According to the report published in Scroll.in, on Wednesday, the group presented a report on Kashmir in a press conference held at PCI, New Delhi.

The activists later claimed that PCI said ‘no’ to screening of video and audio recordings from the valley.

However, PCI rejected the claim.

It may be mentioned that the group consisted of activist and CPI (ML) member, Kavita Krishnan, economist, Jean Dreze, Maimoona Mollah of the All India Democratic Women’s Association and Vimal Bhai of the National Alliance of People’s Movements.

During their tour from 9th to 13th August, they had visited Srinagar, Sopore, Bandipora, Anantnag, Pulwama and Pampore.

Later, Kavita Krishnan shared a video on Twitter and wrote, “Watch the short film – Kashmir Caged – based on footage we collected in Kashmir here. Press Club of India wouldn’t let us show it on their premises. But do watch and share”.

The group alleged that the state had turned into ‘open jail’. Dreze claimed that heavy security forces are stopping people from protesting even if it is peaceful.
