Sopore shuts against 'burglaries’
Sopore, May 4: Shopkeepers in this north Kashmir town observed a 3-hour shutdown and staged a sit-in on Friday against what they said “frequent burglaries” taking place in the area.
“Police had assured us that they will nab culprits but till date nothing has been done to nab the burglars who strike at their will,” President of Sopore Traders Federation Hajii Muhammad Ashraf Ganie told Greater Kashmir.
“The Inspector General of Police Kashmir had promised us during his Sopore visit that steps will be taken to prevent thefts in the area, but he has not implemented his promise so far,” Ganie added.
He said that there have been more than 25 incidents of burglaries in the town.
Later, top police officials reached the spot and assured the agitating traders that they would nab the culprits. After assurances by police, shopkeepers opened the shops but warned, “If burglars are not nabbed they would go on strike.”
