Kashmir calm, curfew persists, Mehbooba appeals peace
Srinagar: Five days after the encounter killing of Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Bukhran Wani, Kashmir finally turned calm with curfew continuing on Wednesday.
Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti once again appealed peace in the Kashmir valley.
- I appeal to everybody to restore calm and peace so that further loss of lives is avoided.
- The loss of precious lives is regrettable but nothing can bring them back.
- While I am deeply grieved, my grief cannot match that of the families who have lost their near and dear ones.
At least 36 people have lost their lives in a protest after the killing of Wani.
Kashmir, however, observed ‘Martyrs Day’ on Wednesday regarding the killing of Kashmiris in the protest against the Dogra rule on July 13, 1931 under strict curfew.
