  • Shutdown in IOK on Maqbool Butt's anniversary

All shops and business establishments were closed in Srinagar city and other major towns of the valley while public transport was off the roads.

Authorities imposed restrictions under section 144 CrPc in the areas falling under police stations including Khanyar, Rainawari, Nowhatta, Safakadal, MR Gunj in downtown and Maisuma and Kralkhud in the uptown area of Srinagar.

"In Pulwama, Kulgam, Anantnag and Shopian towns also adequate deployment was made to maintain law and order", sources said.

The separatists had called for a strike on Sunday on the death anniversary of JKLF founder Mohammad Maqbool Bhat, who was hanged and later buried in Delhi's Tihar jail on this day in 1984.

He, however, said few private cars, cabs and auto- rickshaws were seen plying in areas here there were no restrictions.

Similarly, restrictions were also imposed in and around Bhat's hometown at Trehgam and main town of Kupwara in north Kashmir.

Hundreds of police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in riot gear and armed with assault rifles were deployed across Valley.

Witnesses said, the team of police, however, restricted JRL supporters from moving ahead from Maisuma Chowk and were detained. "People were largely not allowed to move out from their homes", said a local resident.

The activists of separatist parties also participated in the protest and asked Government of India to hand over mortal remains of Maqbool Bhat and Afzal Guru to their family members for proper burial.

A complete shutdown was observed across Kashmir to mark the death anniversary of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) founder Maqbool Bhat. "The sacrifices of our fearless hearts are our guiding light to stay steadfast and patient in our just struggle for self-determination", Mirwaiz wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, in Bhat's native village Trehgam in Kupwara district, people took to roads to protest against his hanging and demand his mortal remains.
