Parts of Srinagar falling under the jurisdiction of seven police stations have been besieged Saturday to disallow the 10th Muharram processions.
Restrictions have been imposed in Khanyar, Rainawari, Nowhatta, MR Gunj, Safakadal, Lal Bazaar and Maisuma. All routes leading to these areas are blocked with drop-dates and concertina wires.
It is pertinent to mention here that authorities have been disallowing the 10th Muharram procession in Srinagar since 1989.
Meanwhile, the authorities have postponed two papers, including Mathematics and Hindi/Urdu, of 8th annual examinations, scheduled on October 26 and 28. The new dates will be issued separately.
