Kupwara: Hundreds of people on Saturday took to streets in Trehgam the native village of Maqbool Bhat in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district to demand mortal remains of late JKLF founder.
Bhat was executed and buried in New Delhis Tihar jail on this day in 1984.
Reports said that the protesters shouting pro-freedom slogans were demanding the return of mortal remains of Bhat.
Meanwhile, curfew-like restrictions were imposed in several areas of North Kashmir to foil pro-Bhat protests.
