Srinagar, May 26, 2022 (PPI-OT):In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, shutdown is being observed for the second consecutive day, today, in Srinagar city and Tral area of Pulwama against the Indian court’s unjust verdict of awarding life imprisonment to illegally detained Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) Chairman, Muhammad Yasin Malik.
