Srinagar: Restrictions imposed to prevent separatist march to Shopian

Shopian encounter Srinagar: Restrictions imposed to prevent separatist march to Shopian
Patty Aguilar | 07 March, 2018, 23:42

National Conference spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu asked the Chief Minister to clarify "why no legal action was taken in the Shopian killings despite Ms. Mufti accepting that the deceased youth were civilians".

The JRL had called for a complete shutdown today against the shifting of Kashmiri prisoners to jails outside the valley.

However, people alleged that the situation was entirely different on the ground as hundreds of security forces and state police personnel have been deployed in the town and outskirts.

While Yasin Malik was detained and lodged in Central Jail Srinagar, Mirwaiz and Geelani were put under house arrest to prevent them from leading protest rallies.

The demand for revoking the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) has grown louder after four civilians and two militants by security forces in Shopian district of South Kashmir on March 4, with the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry joining the demand the removal of AFSPA which gives license to the security forces to kill without any accountability.

Similar reports were received from other parts of the Valley. However, skeletal movement of private vehicles was reported from various areas.

The mobile internet services remained blocked in twin districts of Pulwama and Shopian while the service was restored in Anantnag and Kulgam late last evening.

Also South Kashmir particularly in Shopian restrictions have been placed.

"There were no reports of any untoward incident from anywhere in the valley although some stray stone pelting incidents were reported from some places", he said.

Schools, colleges and universities were closed and all examinations scheduled for Wednesday had to be postponed.

Ending speculation, the Indian Army has officially claimed that three of the four people killed in the Shopian encounter were "probably overground workers (OGW)" of militants.

All the shops, commercial establishments and educational institutions remained closed while public transport was off the roads in Srinagar city while attendance in government offices was thin.
