Srinagar, Aug 14 (UNI) Life remained paralysed in the Kashmir Valley as the strike entered its 11th day today.
Day-to-day work was affected as the strike call given by both the factions of the Hurriyat Conference (HC) in protest against the economic blockade, attack on Muslims in Jammu and firing on peaceful processionists in the Valley, completed its ten days.
More than 30 people, including senior HC leader Sheikh Abdul Aziz, were killed and over 600 wounded in police action during the past four days.
Shops and businesses remained closed even though the curfew was relaxed in Srinagar for nine-hours today.
Traffic was also off the roads and government offices, educational institutions remained closed.
The J&K High Court had given the call till August 15 and asked people to resume normal activities from August 16. However, the High Court appealed to the people to reach Pampore, the home town of Sheikh, to offer fateha.
