Srinagar, December 10

Most of the shops were shut in Srinagar on Tuesday due to a shutdown called by the separatists on the occasion of International Human Rights Day, officials said.

Shops, petrol pumps and other business establishments were shut in several areas of the city, they added.

The shutdown was intense in the downtown areas, the officials said.

Public transport was less, but private cars and auto-rickshaws were plying unhindered, they added.

There were reports of shutdown in certain areas of the other districts of the Valley, the officials said.

The schools in Kashmir were shut after the government announced the winter vacations from Tuesday till February 22, 2020.

The hardline Hurriyat Conference, led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani, had reportedly called for the shutdown on Monday and asked people to observe a “black day” on the occasion of International Human Rights Day. PTI
