Hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on Sunday called for a state-wide shutdown on June 11 to commemorate the death of youths,who lost their lives during protests over the last three years.
“Prayers should be held for all the martyrs and to pay tribute,people should go to the graveyards where these people are buried,” he said in a statement.
He said the shutdown is also to press for a trial of those responsible for the death of 118 people in the last year protest.
The shutdown will coincide with the first death anniversary of Tufail Ahmad Mattoo,who was fatally wounded during protest.
