Complete shutdown observed in Gaw Kadal, adjoining areas
In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown was observed in Gaw Kadal and its adjoining areas today on the completion of 27 years of the deadliest Gaw Kadal massacre.
Call for the strike and demonstrations was given by the joint resistance leadership. All shops and business establishments remained closed while traffic was off the road in Maisuma and Lal Chowk areas of Srinagar.
The puppet authorities imposed restrictions in these areas and deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength across the city to prevent people from staging demonstrations against the Gaw Kadal massacre.
The authorities continued to put Hurriyet leaders, including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Hilal Ahmed War under house arrest or in custody to stop them from leading the demonstrations.
