PM Assured Support to J&K Pandits

Internet services were snapped in Srinagar ahead of the Prime Minister’s arrival. Earlier Saturday, Hurriyat Conference Chairman and separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq was placed under house arrest. The road leading up to his residence in the Srinagar’s Nigeen area saw a heavy deployment of police. The measure was taken as a preventive action in the backdrop of separatists’ call for a complete shutdown in the valley, said local police.
