Lal Chowk sealed to foil JRL march against killing spree
Authorities on Tuesday sealed commercial hub of Lal Chowk in Srinagar city to prevent a march called by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) against the killing spree.
Last evening, the police had issued an advisory, asking commuters to use an alternate route as “the stretch of road from Amira Kadal to Regal Chowk will be blocked for traffic”.
An eye witness said that barricades have been erected by the police at Amira Kadal and the Regal Chowk to prevent any movement towards the historic Lal Chowk.
JRL has called for a march to Lal Chowk today to protest the killing spree and Kulgam “carnage”.
Seven civilians were killed in a blast at the site of a gunfight in Laroo village of Kulgam on Sunday morning.
