Kashmir’s Kishtwar district observes bandh over RSS march

Srinagar: A complete shutdown was observed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district today following the strike call given by a Muslim organisation against the march held by the RSS activists some days ago in the district.

A Muslim religious organisation had given a day-long bandh call against the march held by the RSS activists on the occasion of Vijaya Dashmi on Tuesday, an official said.

He said even though most of the shops and business establishments remained closed, work went on normal in the government offices.

Elaborate security arrangements were put in place to deal with any act of violence or stone pelting, the official said, adding the day passed off peacefully.
