Earlier to mourn the dead, complete shutdown was observed in the town. Youth held massive protests amid fro-freedom and anti-India slogans.

The mourners were also addressed by Hurriyat (g) chairperson Syed Ali Geelani telephonically.

Blaming the government for the killing of the three youth, Geelani said, “Pro-India politicians were responsible for strengthening the Indian occupation on Kashmir.”
