Kashmir Observes Shutdown To Mark Afzal Guru's Death Anniversary
Marking the eighth deathversary of Afzal Guru - the mastermind in Parliament attack - the Kashmir region observed a shutdown on February 9. While the public transport remained the least functioning, the fuel stations and business establishments remained closed in Srinagar. Earlier, the J&K Liberation Front called for a complete shutdown on February 11 to commemorate the death anniversary of its founder Maqbool Bhat. Maqbool was hanged in 1984, at Tihar Jail.
