SRINAGAR, July 4: Life returned to normal in various areas of north Kashmir today after four days of continuous shutdown, protests, clashes and curfews followingr the killing of the two youths Irfan Ahmad Ganaie and Tariq Ahmad Leharwal allegedly by Army on Sunday.

The Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani has given a two hour shutdown call tomorrow from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM against the killing of the two youth and others.

Shops, schools, business establishments, banks, government and private offices today reopened at Bandipora, Hajan, Sumbal, Naidkhai, Ganderbal and other areas of north Kashmir and central Kashmir.

However, most of the shops in Markundal and Kondebal villages remained closed and public and private transport was also plying in small numbers.

The state government authorities continued to place the separatist leadership including Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, JKLF Chairman, Mohammad Yasin Malik and Democratic Party Chairman Shabir Ahmad Shah under house arrest at their respective residences to prevent them from visiting Markundal and Kondabal villages to offer their condolence.

The deployment of police and CRPF was not completely removed from the areas, which witnessed repeated clashes between protesters and police for the last four days. The police and CRPF personnel in large numbers were seen in the areas to foil any attempt of people by holding protest demonstrations.

Most of the areas of north and some areas of central Kashmir observed complete strike and frequent clashes erupted between the youths and the police for the last consecutive days. During these clashes number of youths including a station house officer of Kheer Bawani police station Ganderbal also got injured.

However, due to the normalcy today in these areas, the traffic on all the routes was plying normally and no untoward incident was reported from any parts of the north Kashmir today.

Large number of people today visited the residences of two youths at Markundal and Kondabal to offer their condolences with the bereaved families. Due to the tough security restrictions and curfew, the most of the people could not visit these villages to offer their condolences.

The anger and suspension among the people was still persisting over these killing in the entire north Kashmir and particularly in Markundal and Kondabal villages. The family members of the two youths and common people are ll demanding a harsh punishment to the accused. They are blaming Army and their local infomer responsible for the killing of Irfan Ahmad Ganaie.

Meanwhile, Hurriyat Conference (G) Chairman Syed Ali Geelani has again appealed people to hold post Friday protest tomorrow against the killing of the two youths allegedly by Army.

The Hurriyat chairman has also appealed to observe a two hour shutter down strike from 12.30 P.M to 2.30 P.M tomorrow against the killing. He also appealed people to hold prayers in absentia for the two youths and other martyrs, who became victim of alleged state terrorism.

Geelani said that as per the already announced protest programme for tomorrow, post Friday protest would be held in every major Masjid of the valley and particularly protest demonstration would be held at Jamia Masjid Srinagar and Masjid Hamza Lal Chowk against these killings.
