Shopian protests continue

Shujaat Bukhari

SHOPIAN: There is no let-up in the volatile situation in this township as the strike against the alleged rape and murder of two women entered the 19th day on Wednesday, with people demanding punishment to culprits.

Officials say investigations are not making much headway due to the surcharged atmosphere.

With shops, business establishments, offices and educational institutions remaining closed, the town is lifeless. Stone pelting, especially by youth, has become the order of the day. The town — famous for its fruit business — is facing huge losses every day. “We can go for an indefinite strike until the culprits are booked,” says Irshad Ahmad, a college student.
