Kashmir shuts down to protest Bhutto assassination

Srinagar, December 28, 2007:

A partial shutdown was observed in Indian administered Kashmir Friday to protest the assassination of former prime minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto in a suicide attack on Thursday.

The call for shutdown was given by chairman of the hardline faction of separatist alliance All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

Shops and business establishments remained closed while public transport was largely affected.

The University of Kashmir postponed all the graduate and undergraduate examinations scheduled for Friday.

Police clashed with hundreds of demonstrators in Srinagar, summer capital of Indian administered Kashmir protesting the assassination of Bhutto.

Police used tear gas to disperse the demonstrators who took to the streets before and after the Friday prayers.

Located on the border of India and Pakistan, Kashmir is divided between the two nuclear powers.

An anti-India insurgency broke out in Indian administered Kashmir in 1989.

Indian administered Kashmir is generally known to react to political developments in Pakistan.
