Restrictions in Srinagar; Gilani, Mirwaiz put under detention

Srinagar, December 20 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown is being observed, today, to protest against the recent civilian killings by the Indian troops in the territory.

Call for the shutdown has been given by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik and was supported by the High Court Bar Association of the occupied territory.
