SRINAGAR, Mar 9: Trade bodies of old city of Srinagar have called for a two day shutdown from tomorrow in protest against the summoning of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, chairman Hurriyat Conference ( M) to New Delhi for questioning by NIA.
A joint statement issued by the trade bodies said, "Strongly reacting to the National Investigation Agency's summon to the Kashmir's chief cleric and world renowned religious scholar Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, Beopar Mandal Mahraj Gunj, Shahre Khass Traders and Manufacturers Coordination Committee and Jamia Market Traders Federation has called for complete shutdown in and around Old City Srinagar on Sunday and Monday."
The statement added that the trade bodies said such kind of "nefarious designs" to intimidate the people of Kashmir will not be tolerated at all and would be resisted tooth and nail.

The trade bodies said all the shops, transport, schools and offices will remain closed on Sunday and Monday against this "gruesome" move by the NIA.
