Life disrupted in Kashmir Valley due to Separatist shutdown

Police said prohibitory orders under section 144 CrPC restricting assembly of people will remain clamped in the city and elsewhere in the Valley as a precautionary measure.

The strike has been called by hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference headed by jailed leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani to protest against presence of security forces.

Life in the city and elsewhere in the Valley continued to remain affected as shops, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed and public transport was off the roads.

In Rambagh on Srinagar-airport road, women came out on the road and pelted stones on some government vehicles.Police and paramilitary forces deployed in the area chased them away but they regrouped and shouted slogans.

Residents of areas falling under police stations of Safakadal, Khanyar, Maharajgunj and Nowhatta set ablaze some tyres on the roads to prevent movement of private vehicles. There were reports of some minor incidents from Rajourikadal, Kalashpora, Nawabbazar, Habbakadal, Syed Ali Akbar and Karfali mohalla.
