Angry Hurriyat men set school bus on fire, close shave for kid

5 dec 2010
Srinagar: Alleged hardline Hurriyat supporters on Saturday torched a school bus in a desperate bid to enforce a shutdown call in Srinagar’s Khanyar area. The attack is seen as an attempt to keep Kashmiris, resenting repeated bandhs, indoors.

The bus had just picked up a student from home and was headed for another neighbourhood when it was intercepted. The angry agitators asked the boy and the driver to get off and set the bus afire. Saturday’s arson follows a period of calm in the Valley after months of street protests against the killing of 110 people in firing by security forces. These shutdowns have of late been evoking a lukewarm response.

Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani has been issuing a series of “bandh calendars” against the civilian killings. For about four months, these shutdowns against an alleged fake encounter and the killing of a 17-year-old student crippled life in the Valley. But then the impact of these serial bandh calls began to wane
