Sumbal (Bandipora): Shutdown and protests continued for the second day on Friday in parts of north Kashmir’s Bandipora district over the disappearance of a person.
Mohammad Amin Ganai son of Abdul Qadir Ganai, a carpet weaver and resident of Khumina village, has gone missing since Wednesday afternoon.
On Friday, men and women from the village, including Ganai’s relatives, took to streets. Raising slogans, the protesters blocked the Hajin-Srinagar road. They were demanding whereabouts of Ganai.
“He was a gentleman and had no rifts or grudges with anyone,” Gulshana, a protester, told Kashmir Reader.
Despite rains, the protests continued throughout the day, with the protesters saying they would continue the demonstrations till Ganai returns home.
Ganai went missing on the day on which a missing trader from Sumbal returned home after six days. The trader was allegedly kidnapped by some unknown persons from Regal Chowk in Srinagar.
