Normal life was disrupted in Kashmir on Monday due to strike called by separatists against the recent civilian killings in the valley.

Most of the shops, fuel stations and other business establishments were shut in Srinagar, officials said.

Officials also added that public transport was sparse but private cars, cabs and auto-rickshaws were plying in many areas of the city.

Private educational institutions were shut because of the strike, the officials said. They said similar reports were received from other district headquarters of the valley.

There were no restrictions on the movement of people anywhere in Kashmir, the officials said.

Separatists, under the banner of Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL), had asked people to observe a complete strike today against the recent civilian killings allegedly in firing by security forces.
