Government on Friday imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar on Friday to prevent protests called by pro-freedom leaders.
The leaders have called for post Friday prayer protests in the Kashmir Valley against the US administration’s decision to declare Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahuddin a “global terrorist”.
The restrictions have been imposed in the areas falling under the jurisdiction of five police stations — Khanyar, Rainawari, Nowhatta, M.R. Gunj and Safa Kadal, the police said.
Shops, public transport and other businesses remained shut in these areas.
Heavy deployments of police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have been made in sensitive areas of Srinagar and other districts, the police said.
Traffic movement was normal where there were no restrictions. Inter district transport also moved as usual, officials said.
