Shutdown in Srinagar, Tral; Indian police arrest 10 youth


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, shutdown was observed for the second consecutive day, today, in Srinagar city and Tral area of Pulwama against the Indian court’s unjust verdict of awarding life imprisonment to illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik.

Shops and other business establishments were closed in Maisuma, Abi Guzar, Lal Chowk, downtown areas of Srinagar and in Tral town. Yesterday, Indian police used brute force and fired shells on anti-India and pro-freedom demonstrations in Maisuma and other areas of Srinagar.

Scores of people, including women, assembled at Yasin Malik’s residence at Maisuma, a short distance from Lal Chowk city centre, and raised slogans in support of the Hurriyat leader. Indian forces have been deployed in strength in several areas of the territory to thwart anti-India protests.—KMS
