Srinagar: Parts of Srinagar city on Thursday observed a shutdown on the 10th death anniversary of Mohammad Afzal Guru, who was hanged inside Tihar Jail.

Shops and other business establishments in Nowhatta, Gojwara and Nalla Mar Road areas were closed due to the strike called by banned Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF), news agency PTI reported.

However, private transport was plying normally all across the valley while the situation remained peaceful so far.

Guru was hanged and buried in Delhi’s Tihar Jail on this day in 2013 for his alleged role in the attack on Parliament in 2001 carried out by the Jaish-e-Mohammad.
