Srinagar: Life was today paralysed in the Kashmir Valley following a bandh called by the recently banned pro-Pakistan Jamiat-ul-Mujahideen against the Prevention of Terrorism Act. Shops and business establishments in Srinagar and other major towns remained closed and public and private transport stayed off the roads in response to the dawn-to-dusk bandh, supported by another pro-Pakistan militant outfit, Al-Umer Mujahideen. Jamiat-ul-Mujahideen, along with the Al- Badr, was banned by the Centre on 1 April under Pota.
