SRINAGAR | JULY 14 :Strict restrictions on the movement of people continued today in parts of Srinagar for the third consecutive day.
Police said that the restrictions were in place in Nowhatta, Khanyar, Safakadal, M R Gunj and Rainawari areas of the summer capital.
The restrictions were put in place as a precautionary measure after one of the militants killed in Budgam encounter was a resident of Nowhatta.
However the curbs were lifted from all other areas of the city as well as elsewhere in Kashmir as the situation was normal. Pertinently, authorities had yesterday imposed curfew in Shopian town and restrictions in seven police station areas of Srinagar as well as in Anantnag, Pulwama and Kulgam districts in south Kashmir and Sopore and Handwara townships in north Kashmir.
The decision was taken in view of a strike called by separatists to commemorate the death anniversary of 21 persons who were killed allegedly in firing by the Dogra army on 13 July, 1931. (PTK)
