Srinagar: Kashmir observed a shutdown on Thursday against the killing of senior journalist Shujaat Bukhari and continuing killings of civilians in Kashmir.
The shutdown was called by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik.
Bukhari was killed along with two of his security guards at Press Enclave here on June 14.
Shops, public transport, other businesses and educational institutions remained shut at most places while attendance in banks, post offices and government offices was thin due to non-availability of public transport.
Private transport and some three wheelers, however, moved in uptown areas of Srinagar. Rail services have been suspended as a precaution.
