The Jammu and Kashmir Police on Saturday asserted that all who marched from various parts of the valley to Muzaffarabad on Monday have returned and that no one was missing.
"No complaint of missing has been lodged with the police stations at Baramulla, Sopore, Chandoosa or Sheeri on Muzaffarabad road after August 11," police claimed.
However, police appealed to people to register complaints if anybody is found missing. Hundreds of people had marched to Muzaffarabad to counter the "economic blockade" of valley on that day.
He said 238 persons, stranded in Baramulla district in the wake of imposition of curfew in Srinagar and 40 kms from Sheeri to Uri on August 11, were sent back to their homes.
Curfew was imposed after Hurriyat Conference leader Sheikh Abdul Aziz was killed in a firing incident at Boniyar.
