SRINAGAR - Second martyrdom anniversary of prominent Kashmiri leader, Burhan Muzaffar Wani will be observed on Sunday.
The Hurriyat leadership has also asked the people to observe complete shutdown and march towards Tral town, the native area of Burhan Wani , where a public meeting will be held to pay tributes to him and other martyrs of the 2016 mass uprising triggered by his extrajudicial killing.
Burhan Wani was killed along with his two associates by the Indian troops in a fake encounter in Kokernag area of Islamabad district on 8th July in 2016.
The occupation authorities imposed curfew in Tral town, today, by deploying Indian troops and police personnel in strength to forestall the march.
The authorities have also put several Hurriyat leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Muhammad Ashraf Sehrai and Muhammad Yasin Malik under house detention or in custody to stop them from leading the march.
Meanwhile, normal life was crippled, today, in response to the shutdown called by the Joint Resistance Leadership against the shifting of illegally detained Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson Aasiya Andrabi and her associates from Srinagar Central Jail to New Delhi by India’s National Investigation Agency.
