Srinagar, October 04 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, complete shutdown was observed for the sixth consecutive day, today, in Qaimoh area of South Kashmir’s Kulgam district against the establishment of a new army camp at Redwani village.

All shops and business establishments remained closed while traffic was off the road in Qaimoh, Khudwani, Redwani, Ghat, Hawoora and Mishpoora areas of the district.

The locals said, Indian army’s 1-Rashtariya Rifles has established a camp in the village and both army and special operation group of police are now camped there.
