indiatoday.in

Kashmir valley observed complete shutdown on the death anniversary of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front founder Maqbool Bhat, who was hanged in Tihar jail on February 11, 1984.

A large number of security forces and state police personnel were deployed in all the districts of the valley.

Also, restrictions were imposed in downtown and parts of the civil line as a precautionary measure to prevent any demonstration.

Shops and business establishments were closed though a good number of public and private vehicles were seen plying on roads in restriction-free areas in the city.

All the roads leading to Gantaghar and historic Lal Chowk, the nerve centre of the summer capital, had been barricaded and the people were being directed to take alternate MA road.
