Reacting to the government's move, the elected body of the Kashmir Press Club said the aim of the government was to shut down the club and "stifle the voice of journalists in Kashmir".
The club, which has over 300 members, has been shut since Saturday, when a rival group of journalists barged in and declared themselves to be the "interim body".
In an official release on Monday, the J&K administration said, "The factual position is that KPC as a registered body has ceased to exist and its managing
body too has come to a legal closure on 14 July 2021, the date on which its tenure came to an end." "In its failure to register itself under the central Societies of Registration Act, further compounded by its failure to hold elections to constitute a new managing body, some individuals of the erstwhile club have been committing illegalities on several counts, least of which are false portrayal of being ownermanagers of an entity which is no longer in legal vogue".
