The agitation against 'economic blockade' enforced by Sri Amarnath Yatra Sangharsh Samiti in Kashmir Valley resumed on Friday with people marching towards Idgah ground in Srinagar.

'Pakistanis are likely to fish in troubled waters'

Groups of people, mostly youth, took to streets and marched towards Idgah, a vast ground in interior city, following a 'Idgah chalo' call given by Coordination Committee of separatists.

Giving Kashmir away? No way

The committee, which includes both factions of Hurriyat Conference and Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front among other groups, has asked people to observe a strike on Friday and march to the ground where it will announce its future course of action.

Coverage: The Amarnath Issue

The committee had earlier suspended the agitation for three days on August 19.

Security forces and police have been deployed in sensitive areas, official sources said, adding vehicles with black flags were seen moving on the roads in the city.
