While Prime Minister Narendra Modi has assured revenge for the lives of the slain soldiers, people across the country took out candle marches and protests to express solidarity with the families of the martyrs.

People protested the Thursday’s attack in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir by burning Pakistan’s national flag and effigies of terrorists. Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) has claimed responsibility for the carnage.

A group of protesters blocked the railway tracks at Nalasopara station in Palghar district of Maharashtra to protest against the terror attack.

In several cities across the country, shops were shut in protest and schools held prayer meets as a mark of respect to the martyred CRPF personnel.

Meanwhile, a shutdown was observed in parts of the Kashmir valley. Shopkeepers in Lal Chowk, Maisuma, Residency Road and other adjoining areas downed their shutters at 3 pm in response to a shutdown called by trade bodies of the Valley.

The trade bodies have also called for Kashmir bandh on Sunday. The bandh call was issued by the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Forum, Kashmir Economic Alliance and other trade bodies of the Valley.
