Life in Kashmir limping to normalcy after three-day shutdown over Pulwama civilian killings
Srinagar : Life in some parts of Kashmir started limping back to normalcy after remaining paralyzed for three days due to strikes and protests following the killings of seven civilians in south Kashmir’s Pulwama.
The commercial hub of Srinagar city witnessed the normal rush of shoppers today. Similar reports were received from other district headquarters of the valley.
The public and private traffic was back on the roads while the government and private offices resumed their routine functioning.
On Saturday, seven civilians were killed after the government forces opened fire on protesters following a gunfight that left three militants and a soldier dead.
Soon after the civilian killings, the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) — an amalgam of pro-freedom leadership — called for three-day shutdown and mourning to protest against the civilian killings.
