All communications including phone lines to and from Punjab are cut. Road blocks prevent anyone from entering or leaving Punjab and all journalists are expelled from Punjab. A total curfew is imposed and as many as 10,000 pilgrims are trapped inside the temple complex.
Milk vendors from the villages who supply milk to the city of Amritsar are shot dead for violating the curfew orders.

.....If we could all take a moment out of our day to Remember, Recognize, and Reflect. Also if you live in Vancouver, BC, please try to come out to the candlelight vigil at the Vancouver Art Gallery from 6-9pm.
