Restrictions in Srinagar ahead of Friday prayers


Srinagar, Oct 21, 2016: To prevent post-Friday prayer protests, the authorities on Friday imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar and other places in the Kashmir Valley, a senior police officer said.

The officer said that “Restrictions were imposed in the old city areas of Srinagar and Pampore town today (Friday) to maintain law and order,”

Life remained adversely affected for the 105th consecutive day in the Valley due to separatist called protest shutdown.

However, the intensity of both protests and shutdowns have decreased recently.

Many private vehicles moved on roads and shops in interior markets functioned almost as usual in many parts of Srinagar and other places.

Educational institutions including schools, colleges and universities, however, continue to remain shut across the valley.

In the unrest that started here on July 9, around 91 persons have been killed and over 12,000 wounded — of whom about a 100 face the prospect of permanent blindness.
