"Omar's demand is aimed at scuttling the main issue, which is the return of Guru's body. The CM is trying to subvert and lessen the pressure on the government of India."
Both Abdullah and PDP patron Mufti Muhammad Sayeed have written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh demanding the return of Guru's body.
Abdullah, however, raised the bar by demanding the return of Bhat's remains as well. Bhat was the founder of pro-independence JKLF and was hanged in Tihar in 1984.
On Friday, in response to the separatists' protest calendar, shops, banks, petrol pumps and other businesses were closed and public transport remained off the roads.
