The authorities will impose restrictions in down town area of Srinagar on Saturday to prevent any law and order situation in view of the strike call extended by Hurriyat Conference (M) against the Tosa-Maidan firing range lease agreement.
According to the official sources, the authorities are likely to invoke section 144, prohibiting any public assembly in the old city area of Srinagar.
Pertinently, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq Chairman Huriyat Conference (M) Friday reiterated his call for complete strike on April 12. The High Court Bar Association also extended its support to Mirwaiz’s strike call- stating that the lease agreement of Tosa-Miadan firing range must not be extended in Army’s favour. The lease is ending on April 18 this year. (KNS)
