Srinagar

 A fresh round of curfew was enforced on Sunday in parts of Srinagar city, following fresh stone pelting on Saturday.

“Curfew has been imposed in Zadibal and Nowhatta police station areas and Urdu Bazaar police post area as a precautionary measure,” a police spokesman said.

He said the curfew was in place to prevent further clashes and any possible loss of life or property.

Authorities had on Wednesday enforced a curfew in nine police station areas of the city following clashes in Hawal and Zadibal areas.

Though the earlier three-day long restriction was lifted on Saturday, it was again imposed in Hawal and adjoining areas after fresh clashes broke out in the area.

So far, there are no reports of any violence in the curfew-bound areas while rest of the city remained peaceful.
