Shutdown hits life in Kashmir
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 7: Life here and elsewhere in the Kashmir Valley was hit Saturday by a shutdown called by Hurriyat (G) Chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani against the conviction of Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai by a US court.
Shops, business establishments and schools remained closed while public transport was off the roads. Attendance in government offices and financial institutions was thin due to non-availability of public transport.
Reports from Baramulla, Kupwara, Islamabad (Anantnag), Pulwama, Shopian, Kulgam, Ganderbal, Budgam and Bandipora stated the shutdown affected normal life.
Meanwhile, a police spokesman claimed that strike evoked feeble response.
“In most parts of valley, the call had a marginal impact. It had no impact on the normal life in the Bandipora, Kupwara and Uri town,” he added.
