Police on Thursday said the situation throughout Kashmir valley remained peaceful and no any untoward incident was reported from any place on the day marking second anniversary of the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s limited autonomy.
“Besides, markets and transport also witnessed normal activities as all the types of shops remained open and public/private transport was plying normally across the valley,” a police spokesman said in a statement to a local news agency, Global News Service (GNS).
“Moreover, various Flag hoisting ceremonies/rallies were also organized by various organizations at several places across the districts of Kashmir Valley. Besides, various state functions very also held which included meeting by LG with DDC/BDC members, tours and inaugurations. A women football match was also played at TRC turf between South Kashmir-11 and Srinagar Club,” he said.
He said the “cooperation of general public not only helped in the peaceful situation throughout the valley but also helped to mitigate the propaganda that was being propagated from across the border to disturb the normal activities and peace.”
The spokesman also asked media houses to disseminate the information only after verifying the facts from the concerned quarters “as the news regarding firing incident at Main Chowk Sopore was totally baseless.”
“However, one grenade incident in Srinagar but no one injured. No L&O problems happened in whole Kashmir,” he said.(GNS)
