Complete shutdown observed in occupied Kashmir
In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown, marked by forceful-anti-India demonstrations, was observed in Pulwama on the third consecutive day, on Saturday, against the killing of four civilians by Indian troops.
According to Kashmir Media Service, all shops and commercial establishments remained closed in Pulwama town while public transport was off the roads.
People took to the streets shouting high-pitched anti-India and pro-freedom slogans despite heavy deployment of police and troops by the puppet authorities to thwart demonstrations against the killings.
Police fired teargas shells to disperse the demonstrators, triggering clashes between the protesters and the police personnel.
