Strike disrupts normal life in Occupied Kashmir


Normal life was disrupted in Indian-occupied Kashmir on Saturday due to a strike called by pro-freedom groups against the arrest of ex-Delhi University professor SAR Geelani and JNU students on charges of sedition following the Afzal Guru event in the varsity.

Most of the shops, business establishments, petrol pumps and offices were shut in and around the Lal Chowk city centre and in many areas elsewhere in the city, while government offices witnessed thin attendance, officials said.

They said public transport was off the roads, however, private cars, cabs, and auto-rickshaws were seen plying at many places.
