SRINAGAR: Authorities imposed curfew-like restrictions in Srinagar and other parts of Kashmir Valley on Friday to prevent a resistance leadership's 'Raj Bhawan march'.
Meanwhile, a complete shutdown is being observed on the 98th consecutive day across Kashmir on the call of separatist leaders.
Contingents of police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in full riot gear were deployed in both uptown and old city areas of Srinagar to impose curfew-like restrictions to prevent resistance leadership's 'Raj Bhawan march'.+
Coils of razor fitted concertina wire were placed on main roads and traffic intersections here by the security forces.
Both pedestrian and vehicular movements were disallowed except in city outskirts where some private vehicles were seen moving in the morning.
Despite all the separatist leaders having being placed under detention since July 9 when the present unrest started in Jammu and Kashmir, separatists have been continuing the protests and shutdowns through weekly calendars mailed to the media.
During the last 97 days of ongoing violence, post Friday prayer protests have been taking place across the valley during which precious human lives are lost.
