Strike disrupts normal life in Kashmir

Srinagar,November 8: Normal life in Kashmir was today disrupted due to a strike called by separatists to protest the death of a youth in police action at Zainakote even as authorities imposed restrictions in seven police station areas of the city as a precautionary measure.

Shops and business establishments remained closed in most parts of the city due to the strike call given by both factions of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) to protest the death of Gowhar Ahmad Dar on Saturday, officials said. 

While public transport was mostly off the roads, a few cabs and private vehicles could be seen plying on the roads, the officials said. Dar, an engineering student, was hit by a tear smoke shell as police fired tear smoke shells to disperse a stone-pelting mob near his Zainakote residence on Saturday evening.
