Panic gripped Batamaloo area of Srinagar after Indian troops resorted to firing at Batamaloo Bus Stand and beat up the people who went out to buy milk, vegetables and other essential commodities.

A big anti-India rally was held at Bugam in Chadoora, which was addressed among others by Sikh liberation leader, Narinder Singh Khalisa. The Chairman of All Parties Hurriyet Conference, Syed Ali Gilani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik while giving a joint call of Azadi March on Friday have appealed people to march massively towards Eidgah in Srinagar.

The Chairman of Hurriyet forum, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, and other Hurriyet leaders had already made it clear that any proposed talks on Jammu and Kashmir should involve all stakeholders including Pakistan.
