In Kashmir, complete shutdown, marked by demonstrations, is being observed against an anti-Islam video in the US, reported Kashmir Media Service.
Call for the shutdown has been given by religious organisations and supported by Hurriyet leaders and the High Court Bar Association of the territory. Shops, business establishments and educational institutions are closed while transport is off the road.
Demonstrations against the video were going on in Srinagar, Kangan, Ganderbal, Baramulla, Pampore and towns of the territory. The authorities have deployed Indian troops and police in strength in every nook and corner of the territory.
The authorities have placed Hurriyet leaders including Syed Ali Gilani, Shabbir Ahmed Shah and Zafar Akbar Butt under house arrest to prevent them from leading the demonstrations.
The fire began at dawn on the ground floor of Pasar Senen market, a sprawling complex of stalls on several levels that was built during Dutch colonial rule.
