JAGIR, KASHMIR - FEBRUARY 18: Kashmiri Muslim women relatives of 14-year-old Ghalib Afzal Guru, the son of executed Kashmiri separatist Afzal Guru, weep and console him at his residence on February 18, 2013 in Jagir, Sopore, 50 km (31 miles) north of Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, India. Guru was secretly hanged and buried at the Tihar Jail in India's capital, New Delhi, on February 9 for his alleged role in the 2001 attack on the country's Parliament. His family alleges that they were kept in dark about the execution by the Indian government . Apprehensive of a massive public fallout over the execution, Indian authorities clamped a curfew for seven consecutive days in Kashmir even as three people were killed allegedly in Indian government forces' action during protests and clashes . Meanwhile, separatist groups have called for a three day strike beginning Wednesday to press the Indian government for handing over of Guru's mortal remains to his family for his last rites, a demand growing louder by the day in Kashmir.
