May 30, 2017

SRINAGAR: Curfew and stringent restrictions continue in occupied Kashmir on the third consecutive day, Tuesday to prevent people from conducting a march towards Tral town.

A call for the march was given by the joint resistance leadership comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik to pay tributes to Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Sabzar Ahmad Butt, and other martyrs.

The situation in occupied Kashmir remained tense on the third day while complete shutdown was observed to mourn the killing of Sabzar Ahmad Butt by Indian troops at Saimoh in Tral on Saturday.

All shops, business establishments and educational institutions remained closed while traffic was off the roads.

The occupation authorities deployed huge contingents of Indian police and troops across the Kashmir Valley to enforce strict restrictions. Major roads leading to district headquarters were sealed to prevent people from staging anti-India protests and conducting the march towards Tral town.  INP
