Earlier JRL had called for three days of valley-wide shutdown against the killings of seven civilians and three militants in Sirnoo area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Mirwaiz Umar Farooq had earlier announced that JRL and people will march towards Badami Bagh Army cantonment on Monday 17 Dec “to ask GOI to kill all of us at one time rather than killing us daily.”
