Burhan Wani killed: JKLF, Hurriyat (G) calls for shutdown

Burhan Wani

SRINAGAR: The Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front and Syed Ali Shah-led Hurriyat Conference has called for shutdown on Saturday over the killing of the Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani during an encounter in south Kashmir.

Last month, the 22-year-old commander Wani released a video warning of attacks on separate colonies for Sainiks and Kashmiri Pandits if they are set up in the Valley. The major part of the video message, however, was directed at the J&K Police warning them of more attacks.
