Separatist leaders not allowed to go to Sopore  
Tribune News Service

Srinagar, November 28
Separatist leaders Shabir Ahmad Shah and Nayeem Ahmad Khan were prevented by the police from proceeding to Sopore as they were on their way to north Kashmir on their first visit after their release from jails recently.

The Democratic Freedom Party (DFP) leader, Shabir Ahmad Shah, and the Chairman of the National Front (NF), Nayeem Ahmad Khan, were stopped by the police at Singhpora near Pattan on the highway to Baramulla today.

The two parties have condemned the police action describing it as undemocratic. This was their first visit to Sopore and Baramulla to express sympathies with the families of those killed during the recent turmoil in the Valley, separate statements of their parties said.

Meanwhile, normalcy returned across the Kashmir valley after a day of general strike called by the hardline faction of the Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Geelani in protest against a series of killings and alleged excesses at the hands of the security forces.

All shops and business establishments were open and there was a heavy traffic in the city.

Many private establishments, which had suffered heavily due to frequent closures during the past several months, were also 
open today. However, educational institutions and banks remained closed as these have been functioning normally over the past two months now.

Most of the schools have completed the annual examinations and admissions, while the State Board of School Education has completed the annual examinations of Class X and XII.

The government has decided to cancel the winter vacation in high and higher secondary schools to cover the losses suffered last summer.
