Some shopkeepers instead of opting for verification, stage protest under the influence of vested interests: Police

Srinagar, June 29: There is story going in certain groups that shops are closed in Panthachowk, it is clarified that all shops are completely open in whole of Srinagar district including in Panthachowk, except about a dozen or more mechanical/scrap shops inside yatra camp campus.

These shop owners were asked to get the verification done and operate the shops, but instead of doing this, they opted to protest under influence of some vested interests.

Media houses are kindly requested to get confirmation from Administration before doing sweeping stories on such sensitive matters during the yatra period which can be used by subversive elements to peddle fake narratives. knt
