#Day40: All Roads To UN Sgr Office Sealed; Strict Curfew In Place



The J&K Government has sealed all roads leading to United Nations Office in Srinagar on Wednesday. The harsh restrictions were imposed after united separatist leadership called for ‘UN March’.

Lal Chowk – centre of attraction – has been sealed from all sides. Nobody is being allowed to move on Residency road towards Ghanta Ghar since August 12 since separatists had called for ‘Referendum March’.

The authorities have put in place harsh restrictions since last evening after separatists asked people to march towards United Nations Military Observers Group (UNMOGIP) in Srinagar office for 72-hour protest march “to sensitize UN about its commitment toward Kashmir”.

Authorities have made huge deployment of JKP cops and para military forces. Check points have been established at all points from Batamaloo to Sonwar.

Even media personnel are facing intense problems as they are being stopped and their I-D Cards checked and verified. The curfew passes issued by DDC Srinagar are not being accepted by paramilitary CRPF troopers.

Kashmir is witnessing renewed civil mass uprising against the establishment since July 09, 2016 which was triggered by the death of popular militant commander Burhan Wani. Wani was killed along with his two associates on July 08, 2016 evening in Kokernag area of South Kashmir’s Islamabad.

Government imposed curfew on July 09 as lakhs of people started marching towards Tral-the home town of Burhan.

The protestors raised pro-freedom and anti-India slogans and clashed with forces. The forces responded by using live ammunition and in last 39 days, at least 66 civilians have been killed by forces while over 7500 persons have been injured.
