A complete shutdown is being observed in the Tral area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Sunday to mark the fourth death anniversary of Hizb commander Abid Khan.

As per the reports, all shops and business establishments were closed in the town, while the traffic stayed off the roads.


Mr. Khan was killed in a gunfight that broke out in the Handora hamlet of Tral town in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district on 27 January 2015, in which an army officer and a head constable were also killed. He had joined militancy in 2012 and was killed in an encounter in 2015.
