Srinagar: Normal life was on Sunday crippled in some parts of north Kashmir district of Baramulla on the 26th death anniversary of 53 civilians, who were allegedly killed in security force firing in Sopore on this day in 1993.
Meanwhile, special players were held at many mosques in Sopore and adjoining areas for the civilians who were killed on this day 26 years ago.
A police official told UNI that there were no restrictions in any part of Baramulla though security forces were deployed in some sensitive areas to prevent protests.
However, shops and business establishments, which remain open on Sundays, were closed and traffic was off the roads in Sopore and adjoining areas against the killings. However, few private vehicles were seen plying on some interior roads.
The train service was also suspended for security reasons between the summer capital, Srinagar and Baramulla in view of apprehensions of trouble on this day.
