The All India Newspaper Editors Conference (AINEC) has condemned the "undeclared censorship" on press in Kashmir.

The apex body of editors in a resolution criticised the ruling PDP-BJP alliance in the valley, and added that the ban on publications and raids on the newspaper offices and printing presses is a direct attack on the freedom of the press.

"This new method of undeclared censorship adopted by the PDP-BJP government has set a new precedent of censorship, and it is totally unacceptable," AINEC said here. It urged the JK government to refrain from restrictive and undemocratic methods to gag the press in Kashmir.
