Shopian shut on 5th consecutive day; third youth also succumbed

Kashmir: Despite the hard efforts of both the Jammu and Kashmir state and union government to restore normalcy in Kashmir, the anti-social and anti-national elements are hell bent upon to create panic and tension there as from the last five days the Shopian is observing a complete shut down against the civilians killings in the army firing.

Even today one more critically injured identified as Rayees Ahmad Ganie succumbed to his injuries rising death toll in firing incident to three resulting into the worsening of the situation which will more crumble down the normal life there.

Since the killing of two civilians on Saturday last week all shops, business establishments, government and private offices are closed in the district while public and private transport is off the roads.

This has badly affected the normal life in the district and the common man whose bread and butter is dependent upon the market and daily sales are suffering badly and is striving to meet both ends of the day.

All this is due to the anti-social and anti-national elements which are active in the Kashmir and try their best to mislead the innocent Kashmiri people for their own petty gains and nefarious designs.

Pertinent to mention here that two youths Javaid Ahmad Bhat s/o Abdul Rashid Bhat of Balpora Shopian and Suhail Javaid Lone s/o Javaid Ahmad Lone of Rawalpora were killed on Saturday afternoon when the army opened fire in Ganawpora after the mob attacked their convey and tried to snatch their weapons.

Sufficient contingents of security forces have been deployed at sensitive locations in the district to thwart any element of violence while mobile Internet service is running snapped in Pulwama and Shopian districts.
