Anantnag traders calls off strike after assurance
Top police officer assures probe into police 'excesses'
ESS AHMAD
ANANTNAG, Oct 8: Traders Federation Anantnag on Sunday called off the strike it had called on Friday against the police excesses on shopkeepers. The call was withdrawn following the assurance by top police officials that their complaints will be booked and the detained persons including some shopkeepers will be bailed out.

United Traders Federation, an amalgam of various trade bodies of the town, had on Friday called for a strike demanding the transfer of SHO. They had alleged that the officer besides scattering the goods of many shopkeepers abused them during the clashes that erupted after the Friday prayers. Traders on Saturday had held a meeting with deputy commissioner Anantnag to put forth their demand of shifting of SHO.

General secretary of All Traders Association Anantnag, one of the bodies representing the traders had told Kashmir Times after the meeting that they have decided to continue the strike until their demand is met.

However, on Sunday afternoon, United Traders Association announced calling off the strike following a meeting with top police officials.

Spokesman of the trade body, Sajad Hussain said that they called off the strike after getting assurance from SSP that the matter will be inquired into properly and all the detained persons will be bailed out.

"SSP sahab assured that an inquiry committee will be framed which will probe the matter fairly. He also assured us that all the detained will be bailed out by this evening. When we were assured that our dignity will be taken care of in future we decided to call off the strike," Hussain told Kashmir Times.

However, sources within the trade body said that the main reason to call off the strike was that many members of the trade body were opposed to the decision of going for a strike.

"The traders of Anantnag are already divided. The decision to go for strike had led to more differences between them. So the strike was called off," said a trader.
