Srinagar: Despite restrictions hundreds of people joined the march led by AIP Supremo and MLA Langate Er. Rasheed, which started from Magharmal Bagh and proceeded towards civil Secretariat on Monday.
Protesters were chanting slogans seeking “end to bloodshed by the government forces” and “unconditional ceasefire between militants and the security forces”.
However a heavy contingent of police stopped the march ahead of civil secretariat’s main gate and arrested around one hundred protesters including Er. Rasheed, an AIP statement said.
