Life was today paralysed in Anantnag town in south Kashmir due to complete strike against the continued arrest of Mirwaiz South Kashmir, Qazi Yasir, who has been admitted in a hospital after suffering heart attack yesterday.


Shops and business establishments remained closed and traffic was off the road in the town and parts of outskirts.

However, some private vehicles were plying.

Work in government offices, banks and private institutions was affected due to strike, called by his followers and supported by a number of other organisations.

They are demanding immediate release of Mirwaiz, who remained under detention for the past two weeks.

Educational institutions also wore a deserted look as students and teaching staff stayed away.

Mirwaiz Yasir, known as pro separatist, suffered a heart attack and was shifted to hospital here.

His supporters clashed with security forces during demonstration after Friday prayers.
