Normal life affected in Kashmir due to strike

Normal life was affected as shop and business establishments remained closed and traffic was off the roads in Kashmir valley due to day-long strike called by separatists today against detention of seven of its leaders by National Investigation Agency in connection with ”terror funding”.

Curfew-like restrictions have been imposed since early this morning in the area falling under the jurisdictions of police stations Nowhatta, M R Gunj, Rainawari, Khanyar and Safakadal in the Valley and downtown Srinagar as a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incident.

India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA) on Monday arrested seven separatist leaders including National Front Chairman Nayeem Ahmed Khan in connection with its probe into the funding of “subversive activities” in the Kashmir Valley, officials said.

Officials said that after arresting Bita Karate from New Delhi, NIA arrested six separatist leaders from Kashmir capital Srinagar who according to them will be taken to New Delhi for more proceedings.

Those who have been arrested include, Naeem Ahmed Khan, Bitta Karate, Ayaz Akbar, Pir Saifullah, Mehrajuddin Kalwal, Shaid-ul-Islam and Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s son-in-law Altaf Ahmad Shah alias Altaf Fantosh.

Pertinently, in May this year, the NIA team had arrived here in Srinagar to probe the allegations of “terror funding by Pakistan for illegal activities in Kashmir.”
