The Indian government previously reported that terrorist activities in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir had reduced after the adoption of Article 370, which stripped the former state of its special status in the country.
The move, however, caused a wave of protests in the region, as well as pushback in nearby Pakistan and other countries.
