Stone pelters back on streets, as news of Sabzar Ahmad’s killing spreads
Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Sabzar Ahmad was among the terrorists eliminated by Indian Army. Ahmad was being considered as the successor to Burhan Wani, another terrorist who was killed last year in July. Burhan Wani’s killing had sparked widespread protests in Kashmir and it is expected that the same thing may happen after the killing of Sabzar Ahmad. Already, stone pelters have flooded the streets and even more are being called through WhatsApp and other online communication platforms. Keeping this in mind, the state government has again banned 2G, 3G and 4G internet services. It may be recalled that the government had earlier banned 22 social networking sites including Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter.
