A BBC investigation has uncovered allegations of brutal beatings and torture by soldiers in Indian-administered Kashmir.

The Indian government withdrew the region's semi-autonomous status in early August. There's since been a clampdown on dissent and thousands of arrests, and it's being seen by some as a drive by the Hindu nationalist government for more control over India's only Muslim majority state. The Indian Army has described the allegations as baseless.

BBC News at Ten’s Sameer Hashmi has been inside Kashmir and sent this report, which some people may find distressing.
