News by:

Life in Kashmir came to a standstill on Thursday due to a complete shutdown called by separatists against the legal challenge in the Supreme Court on the validity of Article 35A, which bars people from outside Jammu and Kashmir from acquiring any immovable property in the state. The situation across the Valley is peaceful with no untoward incident reported from anywhere so far, officials said.
