Traders' bodies have called a strike in Kashmir on Monday after the National Investigation Agency (NIA) summoned Kashmir Economic Alliance chairperson Mohammad Yasin Khan to New Delhi in connection with its probe into terror-funding in the Valley.
The call for the strike was given by the representatives of the Kashmir Economic Alliance and the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation at a press conference here.
They said their organisations were not against the ongoing investigations by the NIA in Kashmir, but summoning Khan to New Delhi was "uncalled for and harassment".
"The NIA could have done the questioning in Srinagar," they said.
Khan has been asked to appear before the NIA as a witness in New Delhi on September 25, they said, and appealed people to observe a complete shutdown that day.
