Hurriyat observes shutdown to mark its leaders death anniversary

Normal life in the Kashmir Valley was affected on Monday following a shutdown call by separatist All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) to mark the death anniversaries of their two leaders.

Srinagar, May 21 : Normal life in the Kashmir Valley was affected on Monday following a shutdown call by separatist All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC) to mark the death anniversaries of their two leaders.

Most markets, schools and colleges remained closed during the shutdown.

Locals said they faced a lot of problems due to the strike.

"The strike has had a lot of impact. All shops, schools and colleges are shut. Traffic is minimal on the streets and we are facing problems," said Imran.

Shabir Ahmed, a student, said: "We are facing a lot of problems. No shop is open in the Valley. We come from far-flung areas to work. Even public transport is not plying today."

Unidentified gunmen assassinated Mirwaiz Moulana Mohammad Farooq, former chief priest of the region in 1990 at his residence in Srinagar, whereas, moderate separatist Hurriyat leader Abdul Ghani Lone was killed on this day in 2002.
