Routine activities in Jammu came to a standstill on Wednesday in view of a general bandh (strike) called by various organisations in protest against Tuesday's suicide attack on an army camp at Kalochak, about 10 km from the winter capital of the state.
Shops and business establishments in Jammu and its outskirts remained closed and no vehicles were seen on the roads.
The city wore a deserted look with even government offices remaining closed.
Meanwhile, Union Defence Minister George Fernandes air-dashed to Jammu and visited the Kalochak army camp where he was briefed by senior army officers about Tuesday's attack.
Thirty-three persons were killed and several injured in the incident.
Fernandes visited the military hospital where several of the injured are recuperating.
Authorities have beefed up security in the entire city and its outskirts. All vehicles entering Jammu are being searched.
