SRINAGAR (City News) – A complete shutdown is being observed across the Kashmir Valley today (Monday) against the killing of six innocent Kashmiris in Shopian district.
On Sunday, the Indian troops had opened fire on a car near a military camp in Pahnoo area of the district, resulting in the death of six innocent people. The killings led to massive clashes between protesters and the occupational forces in Shopian, Pulwama and other areas.
Call for the strike was given by the Joint Resistance Leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik. The authorities have imposed strict restrictions in Srinagar, Islamabad, Shopian, Puwlama and Kulgam districts and suspended internet mobile services in south Kashmir to prevent protests.
