Mirwaiz Manzil Rajouri Kadal completely sealed and barricaded ! Repression for the sake of “Development” The new mantra for Kashmir resolution !”
Locals in Rajouri Kadal and Nowhatta areas of old Srinagar city said that contingents of police and paramilitary CRPF arrived early Sunday morning and imposed strict restrictions on the movement of the people forcing them to stay indoors.
It may be recalled here that Mirwaiz Molvi Mohammad Farooq was killed in 1990 and Ab Gani Lone was killed in 2002 when he 12th anniversary of Farooq was being commemorated at Eidgah in Srinagar. (Source)
