Srinagar: A complete shutdown called by separatists affected life in Srinagar's city centre Lal Chowk and adjoining areas here Tuesday.


Shops and other business establishments remained closed in Lal Chowk, Maisuma, Gaw Kadal, Hari Singh High Street and Maharaja Bazar areas of Srinagar following a shutdown called by the separatists to protest the killings of 51 protestors in firing by security forces in Gaw Kadal this day in 1990.

Life was, however, normal in other areas of the city and all other towns of Kashmir Valley.

All senior separatist leaders, including the hardline Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq, Muhammad Yasin Malik, Shabir Ahmad Shah and Muhammad Nayeem Khan had called for Tuesday's shutdown in and around the Gaw Kadal area of the city.

Police and paramilitary forces have been deployed to maintain law and order in the city.

No untoward incident has occurred anywhere in the areas affected by the shutdown so far, police said here.
