Separatists ask people to continue shutdown today
Schools, colleges shut for the day; KU postpones exams
Srinagar: Joint separatist leadership today announced that strike across Kashmir will continue on Tuesday also against the killings in Shopian.
The leadership comprising of Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik strongly condemned the government’s decision of foiling the protest marches of lawyers, traders, and employees towards the civil secretariat.
“Imposition of curfew in entire downtown and caging the entire resistance leadership reflects frustration and acceptance of defeat by the government,” the leadership said in a statement
Meanwhile, the government has decided that class work in all government and private educational institutions will remain suspended on Tuesday (May 08).
The decision has been taken as a “precautionary measure”, official sources said.
In the meantime, all Kashmir University examinations scheduled to be held on Tuesday have been postponed.

“Class work, as already announced, shall also remain suspended on Tuesday,” he said.
