LEDs Prompt Rising Military Tensions in Disputed Kashmir

Tensions in Kashmir are rising thanks to a conspiracy theory, spreading like wildfire, that government supplied LED luminaires are equipped with ‘spy sensors’, which betray the location of militants to the Indian government.

In response to the rumor mill Kashmiris have begun smashing the luminaires in the street and have started looking for alternatives.
