Srinagar: Authorities re-imposed a rigid curfew throughout most parts of Kashmir to prevent street protests after Friday prayers ahead of a proposed march by Hurriyat Conference (G) led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani.

Curfew was announced in some areas of Srinagar, Ganderbal, Budgam and Sopore, while curfew-like restrictions were in place in Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama, Baramulla, Kupwara, Shopian and Bandipora towns.

Restrictions were in place in almost all other parts of the valley.

Geelani group called for the ‘Batamaloo Chalo’ march after Friday prayers from various areas of Srinagar to mourn the death of people killed in firing by security forces.

Heavy deployment of police and paramilitary troops were in place in Batamaloo and all other major towns of the valley.

Security forces were deployed in the old city and uptown areas to prevent pedestrian and vehicular movement.

Traffic intersections have been blocked with coils of concertina wire.

A senior police officer told Agence India Press that, restrictions were in place in almost all other parts of the Valley.

Hurriyat (G) had urged people to march to district headquarters in their respective districts to protest against the human rights violations and the killing of 15 civilians during the present unrest.
