DAY 2 :SOPORE SHUTS
Sopore, July 1: This north Kashmir town observed a shutdown for second consecutive day on Friday to mourn the killing of a militant.
Shops and business establishments remained closed in Main Bazar, Chotta Bazar, Arampora and Tehsil road and traffic was off the roads.
However, a few shops were open near General Bus Stand and Iqbal Market of the town.
Pertinently, police on Wednesday had claimed that a militant Tamir Ahmed Khuroo shot himself dead inside a Masjid, when he was chased by paramilitary CRPF men. However, locals had contested the police claim saying he was shot dead inside the Masjid.
Superintendent of Police Sopore Altaf Ahmed Khan said that situation in the town remained normal today. “Shops were open in many areas and traffic was also plying normally,” he said.
