SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI

Srinagar, Mar 12: Old City, the Shaher-e-Khaas observed a complete shutdown for the second consecutive day Tuesday as shops remained closed and peaceful demonstrations were staged against the detention of youth accused of stone pelting.
 Shops in almost all the areas falling in the congested old City remained shut while the shopkeepers and locals staged roadside protests.
 While the business activities remained suspended, traffic movement was also affected as people staged protests against police after a youth Asif Qazi was yesterday arrested by security forces from his shop. The locals said some other youth have also been taken into custody, and demanded their immediate release.
 The traders’ associations which supported the shutdown call demanding release of their arrested colleagues includes: Central Traders Association Nowhatta,  Center Bazar Committee, Nallah Mar Road shopkeepers, Rajouri Kadal shopkeeper, Islamia College shopkeepers, Gojwara shopkeepers, Buha-Ud-Din Sahib shopkeepers, Khawaja Bazar shopkeepers, Saida Kadal shopkeepers, Kathi Darwaza shopkeepers, Ranger Stop shopkeepers, Pandan shopkeepers, Malaratta shopkeepers, Bohri Kadal shopkeepers and Jamia Market shopkeepers.
 The shopkeepers who observed a complete shutdown called off their strike in the evening saying the markets would reopen on Thursday as Wednesday is “scheduled to be Civil Curfew as has been announced by the Mutahida Majlis-e-Ulema.”
 The shopkeepers said they decided to reopen the markets following a meeting with senior police officials. The traders under the banner of Joint Coordination Committee Shaher-e-Khaas said they had a “positive meeting” with Senior Superintendents of Police, Syed Ashiq Hussain Bukhari.
 They said a 10-member team of traders attended the meeting. They include: Muhammad Jamal, Farooq Ahamd Bhat, Bilal Ahmad Wani, Zahoor Ahmad, Muhammad Amin Dara, Shafat Hassan Makhdoomi, Rafiq Ahmad and  Ajaz Ahmad, their spokesman said.
 The decision to call off the strike was taken in the evening after a joint meeting of traders which was attended by Centre Traders & Manufactures Association Srinagar President Farooq Ahmad Gilkar, Jamia Market Traders Federation Shaher-e-Khaas President, Javed Ahmad Zargar, Muhammad Jamal, Abdul Qayoom, Molvi Nazir Ahmad, Muhammad Amin Dara, Bilal Ahmad Wani, Farooq Ahmad Bhat, Muneer Ahmad Shah, Muhammad Altaf, Javed Ahmad Masoodi and other working committee members.
