This day was Guru Arjan Sahib’s martyrdom. Thousands gathered to commemorate. A total curfew was imposed, trapping thousands of civilians inside the Complex; no opportunity was given for civilians to leave. All communications, including phone lines to and from Panjab, are cut. Roadblocks prevent anyone from entering or leaving Panjab, and all journalists are expelled from Panjab. Panjab is sealed off from the rest of the world.
