A complete shutdown is being observed in south Kashmir's Shopian district on the sixth anniversary of Asiya and Neelofar who were found dead in a canal on this day in 2009.

Shops and other business establishments are closed while public transport is off the roads.

The death of Asiya and Neelofar had triggered widespread protests across the Kashmir valley in 2009.

While the family members allege the women were raped before being murdered, a CBI investigation said the duo died due to drowning in Rambi canal.
