Separatists have called for a valley-wide shutdown to protest against Afzal's hanging and press for the return of his remains to the family.

Afzal belonged to north Kashmir's Du Aabgah village situated on the outskirts of Sopore town.

He was hanged in Tihar Jail on this day in 2013 for the 2001 terror attack on Parliament in which 14 people including five attackers were killed.

Sopore town was sealed by the security forces.
