SRINAGAR, India (AP) — Most shops and businesses are shut in Indian-controlled Kashmir after separatists called for a three-day strike to demand the return of the body of a Kashmiri man secretly executed and buried in the Indian capital.
The strike began Wednesday and authorities imposed a ban on the assembly of more than four people to prevent protests in the region.
Kashmir was rocked by violent anti-India protests after Mohammed Afzal Guru was hanged in a New Delhi jail Feb. 9. He was convicted of involvement in a 2001 attack on India's Parliament.
Three protesters died in clashes with troops.
Many Kashmiris believe Guru did not get a fair trial and the execution's secrecy only fuelled the anger in a region where anti-India sentiment runs deep.
