Srinagar, January 09:Dozens of adjoining areas of Awantipora in Pulwama district observed a complete shutdown against the killing of a Kashmiri youth, Wasim Yousuf Dar, a resident of Digri Pora by the Indian Army near Beigh Pora in Awantipora on Tuesday evening.
All shops and business establishments remained closed and transport was off the roads of Beigh Pora, Malang Pora, Digri Pora and Gulzar Pora.
Muhammd Yousuf Dar, the father of the martyred youth, in a media interview in Pulwama said that Wasim was very intelligent and he had come off with flying colours in his class 12th examination. “He was studying at Government Higher Secondary School Panzgam. In March 2012, he suddenly went missing and Army and Police raided our house several times,” Dar said. Hundreds of people amid pro-freedom slogans participated in Wasim Yousuf Dar’s last rites.
