Curfew-like restrictions imposed in parts of Srinagar

Srinagar (The Statesman) -- Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir imposed restrictions in parts of the city on Friday to scuttle separatist-called protests.

Srinagar District Magistrate Farooq Ahmad Lone said restrictions under section 144 of CrPC would remain in force in Rainawari, Khanyar, Nowhatta, M.R. Gunj, SafaKadal, Kralkhud and Maisuma.

Security tightened in Jammu and Kashmir.

The police and paramilitary contingents have disallowed all vehicular and pedestrian movement in these areas.

The separatists have called for post-Friday prayer protests in the Kashmir Valley.

Senior separatist leaders including Syed Ali Geelani, MirwaizUmerFarooq and Yasin Malik have been placed under detention to prevent their participation in the protests.

While Malik has been lodged in Srinagar Central Jail, Geelani and Mirwaiz continue to remain under house arrest in the city.

Shops, public transport and other businesses remained closed here while skeletal private transport plied on the roads.

Attendance in banks, post offices and government offices was also affected because of the non-availability of public transport.

The AmarnathYatra pilgrims' movement, however, remained unaffected.

Reports from other cities and towns in the valley also indicated life was adversely affected by the separatist protest call.
