Hundreds of people on Saturday evening staged a flambeau protest in Trehgam village of Kupwara in north Kashmir on the eve of death anniversary of Mohammad Maqbool Bhat.
Witnesses said that scores of people including family members and relatives of Maqbool Bhat took out a peaceful flambeau protest march from Maqbool Abad up to the main market Trehgam.
They said that the Protestors carry placards of JKLF founder Muhammad Maqbool Bhat and shouting pro-freedom slogans were demanding the return of mortal remains of Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) founder.
Bhat was executed and buried in New Delhi’s Tihar jail on 11 February in 1984.
Meanwhile, curfew-like restrictions imposed in several areas of North Kashmir to foil pro-Bhat protests and all the entry and exit points have been sealed with concertina wires and barricades.
