27 October: To mark ‘Black Day’, Kashmir shuts, restrictions in Srinagar

Srinagar: A complete shutdown is being observed in Kashmir today, October 27, against the landing of Indian army in the valley on the same day in 1947.

All the business establishments, markets, schools, colleges, and transport across the valley are closed. The Joint Resistance Leadership had called for a complete strike to mark the “black day” in the history of Kashmir.

In Srinagar, all shops and business establishments remained closed everywhere. To prevent people from holding any protest demonstrations, the authorities have imposed strict restrictions in areas of Nowhatta, MR Gunj, Safa Kadal, Rainawari, Khanyar, Kralkhud and Maisuma.

Similar reports of shutdown were received from all district headquarters in northern and southern Kashmir.

As a precautionary measure, the Northern Railways suspended train services on the Baramulla to Banihal route.
