New Delhi: A total of 5,161 "preventive arrests" have been made in the Kashmir valley from the eve of abrogation of Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir in August, which includes politicians, separatists and stone-pelters, the government informed Parliament on Wednesday.

"With a view to prevent commission of offences involving breach of peace and activities prejudicial to the security of the state and maintenance of the public order, 5,161 preventive arrests, including stone pelters, miscreants, OGWs (over ground workers), separatists and political workers, were made since August 4, 2019, in Kashmir Valley," Union minister of state for home G Kishan Reddy said in a statement to Rajya Sabha.
