Separatists Allow Full-Day Relaxation In Kashmir Shutdown For Two Days

A Separatists-called shutdown has been in effect in Kashmir since July.

Srinagar:  Separatists, spearheading the ongoing agitation in the Kashmir, on Wednesday announced a first full-day relaxation on Saturday and Sunday in the shutdown since the unrest broke in July.

The people have been also asked to "exclusively" use public transport while travelling to compensate the losses suffered by transporters.

The Separatists had also announced 15-hour relaxation in the strike beginning 4 PM last week on Wednesday and Thursday but called for complete shutdown on Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

"There will be full day relaxation on November 19 and 20. People are requested to exclusively use public transport on these days for the support of transport community," the camp, comprising both factions of Hurriyat Conference and JKLF, said in a statement here.

This is for the first time that separatists had announced full-day relaxation during the ongoing unrest which began after the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8.

The full-day relaxation comes days after private passenger vehicles plied on some routes in Srinagar after being severely hit by the four-month long strike.
