Srinagar is again back to business responding to the call of united resistance leadership.
There is a deal in shutdown this evening after 6 PM. The markets opened this evening as they were shut last evening “because of no deal” by pro-freedom leadership.
The traders were seen waiting in Lal Chowk and Residency Road outside their shops till 6 PM. As clock struck point 6, they pulled up shop shutters.
The rush of private vehicles increased on the roads. Children ad elders were seen enjoying their time in Partap Park in Lal Chowk.
Meanwhile, correspondent reports from Sopore said that shops continue to remain closed despite relaxation in shutdown as the forces stopped them from observing “Hurriyat deal”.
Forces “enforced” shutdown in the town on Tuesday when there was relaxation in shutdown from 6 PM.
“Forces personnel are manning main markets and have not allowed anyone to open shops,” reports said.
Reports from Lal Chowk said that shopkeepers thrashed a boy – an alleged government agent – at Regal Lane,
As soon as the shops opened the boy hurled stones at the shops when they were doing normal business and attending the customers.
“We caught him and thrashed him. We even frisked his pockets for identity cards so that we could come to know who he was. However, he had only one hundred rupee in his pocket. He did not divulge anything. But we are sure he is a government agent as they don’t want us to follow Hurriyat programme,” reports quoted shopkeepers as having said.
The shopkeepers later set him free after advising him “not to sabotage the Hurriyat protest calendar and relaxation period”.
