Shutdown disrupts normal life in Kashmir
Srinagar, Feb 27: Normal life was affected in Kashmir on Wednesday due to a strike called by separatists to protest the NIA raids at residences of several leaders in the valley.
Most of the shops, fuel stations and other business establishments remained while public transport was off the roads, though few private cars and auto-rickshaws were seen plying in some areas of the city. Roadside vendors also went about their business in some uptown areas.
Similar reports of shutdown were received from other district headquarters of the Valley.
Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) has called for two day shutdown on Wednesday and Thursday against Tuesday’s NIA raids on separatists and threats to tinker with Article 35-A which is facing a legal challenge in the Supreme Court.
