Srinagar: The alleged vandalism of cemetery signboard at the hands of security personnel sparked protest and spontaneous shutdown in Sambora Pampore area in South Kashmirs Pulwama district.
Sources told CNS that on August 14 some youth have allegedly unfurled Pakistani flags over the top of cemetery sign board. Security personnel according to locals appeared during the dead of the night and vandalized the signboard of the grave yard.
All the shops and business establishments in the area remained closed as a mark of protest.
Locals while resenting the action of security personnel amid anti-India slogans staged a protest and observed a complete shutdown in the area.

Despite repeated attempts, no police official commented on the issue.
