Srinagar: A curfew imposed in some areas of Srinagar city following protests called by the separatists will continue on Friday, while the movement of patients and other emergencies will be allowed, authorities said.
"A curfew will continue as a preventive measure in Rainawari, Nowhatta, MR Gunj, Safa Kadal, Zadibal and Maisuma areas," a senior police officer told a news agency.
"The deployed security forces have been instructed to allow the movement of patients and other emergencies in the areas placed under curfew," the officer added.
The curfew was imposed after a youth, Bashir Ahmad, was killed in firing by security forces in Nawa Kadal area of the city Wednesday.
Two people, a youth and a woman, were injured in the firing incident.
Hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Geelani has called for protests after the Friday prayers.
