RESTRICTIONS, SHUTDOWN IN KULGAM
Kulgam, Feb 17: Day after paramilitary CRPF personnel resorted to indiscriminate firing on militants’ funeral procession at Redwani in this South Kashmir district leaving eight people injured, normal life remained paralyzed in the entire district amid shutdown and restrictions.
A complete shutdown was observed in the entire district amid strict restrictions enforced by the police. Shops, business establishments, government and private offices remained closed while the traffic was off the roads.
“We were not allowed to venture out of our houses owing to the strict restrictions imposed by the police in the entire district,” said the residents of Redwani.
A huge contingent of police and CRPF were deployed in the area to prevent people from staging any demonstration against Tuesday’s firing incident.
Early in the morning a group of youth took to the streets and resorted to stone pelting, however the troopers chased them away. Restrictions were also put in place in the adjoining villages of Qaimoh, Khudwani, Yaripora, Frisal and Buchroo. Shutdown was also observed in the Kulgam township.
Srinagar, Feb 17: The CRPF has denied that its personnel opened fire on people participating in funeral procession of a militant on Tuesday at Redwani in Kulgam district.
The CRPF spokesman said “CRPF has not fired any live bullets on the procession of the public.”
