A complete shutdown is being observed in South Kashmir’s Shopian town and adjoining areas for the second consecutive day against the killings.
All the shops and business establishments remained closed in Shopian while transport remained off the roads, an official said.
Life in rest of the valley returned to normal after yesterday’s strike called by the separatists against the killings in the incident. Six persons including two militants have been killed in Sunday night’s shootout in Shopian’s Pahnoo area.
While the Army has said the slain youth were militants and their overground workers, police has said they are investigating the incident.
