Srinagar: Kashmir’s  Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq  and Muhammad Yasin Malik  have called for a complete strike on Wednesday in Kashmir against killing of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari and the continuous civilian deaths in the Valley.
In a statement, JRL said, “The civilian killings in the Valley have witnessed a sudden spike since Eid as three young boys have been brutally gunned down by the government forces while the fourth (one) is battling for his life at SKIMS”.
“The strike will also be observed against the brutal killing of veteran journalist Shujaat  Bukhari,” said the JRL while demanding an international probe into his gruesome murder.
