Following the resistance calendar, the markets in Srinagar opened after 2 PM on Sunday, however, clashes erupted in Old Srinagar.

It was first since the current anti-India uprising was triggered by the death of popular Hizbul Mujahideen Commander, Burhan Wani. Although, the resistance leadership had given “deals” in shutdown but police did not allow people to resume their work. However, later, people started resuming their businesses after 6 PM whenever there was ‘deal’.

In the current calendar, resistance leaders had asked people to resume lives from 2 PM. Shops opened but public transport was missing from the roads.

Reports said that markets opened in towns and villages while a massive traffic jam was also reported in-and-around Srinagar city.

At sharp 2pm, the shops and other business establishments pulled up their shutters in Lal Chowk and other parts of civil lines areas resulting in rush in the area.

Kashmir observed complete shutdown today for the straight 79th day.

However, in Old Srinagar, a pro-freedom rally was taken out from Rajouri Kadal which moved through lanes and was intercepted by police and CRPF at Nawab Bazaar. “Forces fired scores of tear gas canisters and pellets to disperse off the protestors,” an eye witness said. The unfolding events led to complete shutdown and huge forces were deployed once again.
