Restrictions imposed in Indian-controlled Kashmir on Afzal Guru's hanging anniversary

Train service resumes in Kashmir

Security in Jammu and Kashmir has been beefed up amid the possibility of a strike by Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) on the death anniversaries of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) founder Maqbool Bhat. A gardener also died in the attack.

It is to mention here that India had executed Muhammad Afzal Guru in New Delhi's Tihar Jail on this day in 2013 while Muhammad Maqbool Butt was hanged in the same jail on 11th February in 1984.

The Supreme Court had declared at the time that the "collective conscience of the [Indian] society will be satisfied only if the death penalty is awarded to Afzal Guru".

He said that authorities have impose strict restrictions in Sopore town to thaw any protests in the town.

The JRL has also called for a shutdown in IHK on Feb 11 (Sunday) on Butt's death anniversary, and a march to the United Nations observers' office in Srinagar to present a memorandum to the UN secretary general demanding the returns of Guru and Butt's mortal remains.

The bodies of both Guru and Butt are buried within jail premises.

Hurriyat leaders Gilani, Farooq, Malik are among others who have been placed under house arrest or detained in order to prevent their participation in events being held in connection with the death anniversaries of Guru and Butt.
