The Hurriyat appealed to the people to participate in the shutdown to protest the “illegal and revengeful arrest” of Hurriyat leaders.
All the shops and other business establishments remained closed in Lal chowk area of Srinagar and other parts of the valley.
Movement of public transport was also affected by the strike.
Restrictions are in place in areas falling under the jurisdiction of Nowhatta, MR Gunj, Rainawari, Khanyar and Safakadal police stations in Downtown Srinagar.
