Handwara Violence: Another Security Force Bunker Removed From Main Market

SRINAGAR, Apr 19: Municipal authorities in violence-hit Handwara town on Tuesday removed three army bunkers from the main market, fulfilling one of the long pending demands of local residents.

"Three bunkers, which were constructed on top of shops in Handwara main market, have been removed by municipal authorities," a police official said.

He said the main bunker, located in the round-about of the main market, has also been vacated and taken over by municipal authorities.

The municipal authorities also erected a board on the premises of the bunker, marking the place for conversion into a public park.

The locals had been demanding removal of the bunkers for quite sometime but the Army had put its foot down, saying it was strategically important for the troops.However, the demand for removal of these bunkers intensified after last week's violence in which five civilians were killed in army and police action.(Agencies)
