Srinagar, March 06, 2016 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, a complete shutdown was observed by shopkeepers in Srinagar against high-handedness of Indian armed forces. Call for shutdown was given by Gojwara Traders Federation and All Kashmir Traders Federation of the city after a shopkeeper, Sajjad Ahmad Khan, sustained pellet injuries in clashes erupted between youth and forces at Gojwara.
All shops and establishments remained closed in the city and the traders staged a sit-in at Gojwara Chowk against high-handedness by police and Central Reserve Police Force. Sajjad runs a blanket shop at Gojwara Chowk. He is undergoing treatment at Soura hospital. “During clashes, forces ransacked our shops and thrashed us without any provocation,” the protesting shopkeepers said.
