Life returns to normal in Kashmir after two days of shutdown, restrictions


Life in most parts of the Valley on Monday started limping back to normalcy after remaining paralysed for two straight days due to shut down and restrictions.

Joint Resistance Leadership had called for the two-day shutdown on July 7 & 8 against shifting of Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson Syedah Asiya Andrabi and her associates to Delhi’s Tihar Jail, and to commemorate the 2nd death anniversary of militant leader Burhan Muzaffar Wani.

Fearing widespread protests on the shutdown call, the government had imposed curbs and snapped internet services across the Valley.

Reports said that after two days of closure, all shops, offices, business establishments, banks and petrol pumps in Srinagar and other major towns and districts of the Valley reopened this morning. The transport that was off the roads from last two days also plied normally.

Meanwhile, Police said 8 July, marking the death anniversary of Hizb commander Burhan Wani, passed off peacefully as compared to last year when “22 incidents of violence and stone pelting were reported across the valley.”

“This year only 5 isolated incidents were reported,” a top police officer said, adding, “Some miscreants tried to create panic by uploading old videos on social media to which the general public didn’t pay any heed,” the officer claimed. The internet services in Kashmir Valley were completely barred. (GNS)
