Curfew imposed in Kishtwar again

Curfew was again imposed in Kishtwar following death of banned Jamaat-e-Islami (JeI) leader Master Ghulam Nabi Gundana in Ludhiana and people’s decision to hold his Namaaz-e-Jinaza prayers at Choughan ground, where large gathering was expected.


Deputy Commissioner Kishtwar Angrez Singh Rana said that curfew was imposed in Kishtwar for tomorrow following death of Gundana as people decided to hold his Namaaz-e-Jinaza prayers at Choughan ground.


“Selected people will be allowed to attend burial of Gundana,” Rana said, adding that curfew has been imposed as precautionary measure. Gundana was 89 and his Namaz-e-Jinaza is scheduled for 11 am on Monday.


Sources said Gundana was ailing for the past some time and he breathed his last in Ludhiana on Sunday. His body was brought by the family at his house in Jamia Masjid Mohalla of Kishtwar.
