Srinagar: Heavy deployment of government forces has been made on Thursday in Srinagar and other parts of the valley as Kashmir observed the fourth death anniversary of parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru, reports said.
Markets, public transport, coaching centres remained shut and very little private transport was seen across the valley.
Pro-freedom leaders have called for a valley-wide shutdown.
Guru belonged to north Kashmir’s Du Aabgah village situated on the outskirts of Sopore town.
He was hanged and buried secretly in Tihar Jail on this day in 2013 for the 2001 attack on Parliament in which 14 people including five attackers were killed.
Sopore town has been sealed by the forces, reports said.
