The camp, in the leadership of Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, has decided to extend the agitation till August 25, 2016.

The prevailing unrest affected the normal life for the 43rd consecutive day as the curfew and restriction prevented people from stepping outside of their house.
