Srinagar, May 24: Traders observed a complete shutdown in Soura locality here in Srinagar city against bad drainage system and dilapidated road conditions.
All the shops and business establishments remained shut in the area. Traders blocked the road for a couple of hours to attract the attention of authorities. Civil and Police administration officials rushed to spot and assured that the problems will be addressed.
