Srinagar:

A day after three motorbike-borne terrorists killed a shopkeeper for keeping his grocery shop open at Parimpora on the outskirts of Srinagar, Kashmir Valley saw a complete shutdown even as authorities on Saturday lifted strict restrictions imposed in view of Friday congregational prayers.


The killing of shopkeeper Ghulam Mohammad, 65, was the first such crime by terrorists since Parliament defanged Article 370 and ended J&K’s special status on August 5. Before the murder of Ghulam, shops and business establishments had started running with shutters half open.

Although restrictions were lifted and barricades removed from the roads in most areas of the city and elsewhere in the Valley to allow the movement of people, internet and mobile blockade continued on Saturday, government officials said.

However, deployment of security forces continued on the ground to maintain law and order, the officials added. Schools and educational institutions along with banks and government offices also remained closed in the Valley due to fear of terror attacks.

Meanwhile, security forces are on high alert following the arrest of two Pakistani terrorists from Gulmarg last week.
