SRINAGAR Authorities today decided to impose the restrictions in Srinagar parts including old city on Sunday as a precautionary measure.
A government official said, there shall be complete restrictions within the territorial jurisdictions of Khanyar, Rainawari, Nowhatta, Safakadal, MR Gunj police stations of the district on Feb 24 (Sunday).
The restrictions have been imposed as a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incident.
