Trade bodies of Shehr-e-Khass call for 2-day shutdown


Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Srinagar, March 09 : Strongly reacting to National Investigation Agency’s (NIA) summon to the Kashmir’s chief cleric and senior Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Kashmir’s one of historical traders body Beopar Mandal Mahraj Gunj, Shahre Khass Traders and Manufacturers Coordination Committee and Jamia Market Traders Federation have called for two-day complete shutdown in and around Old City Srinagar from tomorrow (Sunday and Monday).

In a statement issued , the trade bodies said such kind of ‘nefarious designs’ to intimidate the people of Kashmir will not be tolerated at all and would be resisted tooth and nail.

They said all the shops, transport, schools and offices will remain closed on Sunday and Monday against this ‘move’ by the NIA.

Meanwhile, hours after the NIA summoned Mirwaiz, the Hurriyat Conference (M) chief was placed under house arrest. Mirwaiz was placed under house detention at his Nigeen residence soon after a notice was issued to him NIA, asking him to appear before NIA court on Monday at New Delhi.
