Guru Bazaar (8th Muharam March) today again became unsuccessful when huge number of armed police CRPF and Kashmir Police were deployed at Lal Chowk - Munwar crossing internal link roads leading to Guru Bazaar. The movement of people was freezed towards Guru Bazzar were the people would assemble and proceed through Lal Chowk to reach Dal Gate were the Holy procession would terminate. In the morning Traffic jam was seen at Khayam Chowk and Barricades and concertina wires are laid across the linking roads.
At Jehangir Chowk some of Shia young males were detained who were peacefully marching towards the Guru Bazaar.
