Curtain comes down on Kashmir unrest – slowly

Separatists on Wednesday decided to trim their week-long protest shutdown to two days a week, thus slowly bringing the curtain down on a bloody agitation they spearheaded for five months in the Kashmir Valley which claimed some 100 lives.

Hurriyat sources told IANS that the over five-month-long protest shutdown is likely to be called off partially.

The unrest — the deadliest in six years — has also left over 12,000 persons, including security men, injured.

Around 150 people injured by pellets fired from pump action guns by the security forces face the prospect of permanent blindness.
