A complete shutdown is being observed today in Tahab area of south Kashmir's Pulwama district against the killing of a woman and arrest of dozens of youth during a nocturnal raid.

A woman died allegedly due to suffocation caused by intense teargas shelling by government forces in south Kashmir's Pulwama district on Tuesday.

Reports said that twenty-five youth were arrested during a raid last night.

The arrests triggered a shutdown in the area with shopkeepers staying away from the market.

Public transport also remained off the roads.
