Kashmir Bandh Today against Arrest of Masarat, One Dead in Clash

Srinagar, April 18: The tension intensified across Kashmir valley after the arrest of separatist leader Masarat Alam. The Hurryat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has called for a bandh on Saturday to protest the arrest of Alam, who wants Kashmir to be the part of Pakistan not India.

Following the bandh call, the security has been tightened across the valley. According to latest report, one person died after police opened fire at the protesters in Narbal. More than 24 people were injured in the clash between security forces and the protesters in the region. 

The release of Alam from the jail by the PDP-BJP coalition government is giving sleepless night to chief minister Mufti. Under pressure Alam was arrested for waving Pakistan flag and raising anti-national slogans at a rally in Srinagar. However, outrage was seen across the region after his arrest.

Although, Hurriyat leader Geelani has been placed under house arrest on the charge of shouting anti-India slogans, he called for a bandh in the valley.

Kashmir is now struggling for peace, its people are however being motivated by the anti-nationals and becoming the victim of the dirty politics.
