Life returns to normal in Kashmir
Srinagar, Mar 21 : Life returned to normal in the Kashmir valley, where one-day strike was observed yesterday on a call given by Mutthahida Majlis-e-Mushawarat (MMM), an alliance of different separatist organisations, demanding return of mortal remains of Parliament Attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) founder Mohammad Maqbool Bhat.
Guru was hanged in February this year, while Bhat was hanged in 1984 in Delhi's Tihar jail and later buried in the jail complex.
Business and other activities resumed this morning and traffic on all routes was plying normally in the summer capital, Srinagar.
A number of private schools, which were closed yesterday due to strike, were functioning today despite holiday on account of Nauroz festival.
However, students of government educational institutions were not so lucky as their schools remained closed.
Reports of normalcy were also received from other parts of the Kashmir valley.
