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.
