Later, Indian forces resorted to baton-charge and tear gas at the participants of the rally, which was retaliated with stone throwing by the protesters.
Hurriyet leaders including Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Mukhtar Ahmed Waza, addressing public gatherings at different places, said that India could not suppress the ongoing liberation struggle of Kashmiris through repressive measures. Complete shutdown was observed in Tangmarg to mark the martyrdom anniversary of a Kashmiri scholar, Professor Abdul Waheed.
