Complete Shutdown Observed In IIOJK

Complete shutdown was observed in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir, on the completion of 31 years to the horrible Gaw Kadal massacre.

Call for the shutdown was given by the All Parties Hurriyat Conference and supported by other Hurriyat Organizations.

The occupation authorities deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength in Srinagar and other areas to prevent people from staging demonstrations against the massacre.

Indian troops erected barricades at all entry points of main roads to disallow vehicular and pedestrian movement.

More than 50 innocent people were killed in Gaw Kadal area of Srinagar on this day in 1990 by opening indiscriminate fire on peaceful demonstrators who were protesting against the molestation of several women by the Indian troops on the previous night.
