"Curfew has been imposed across Srinagar district,"
District Magistrate Srinagar Mehraj Ahmad Kakroo said.

Police vehicles, fitted with public address system,
announced imposition of curfew and asked people not to violate

Anyone violating the curfew will be dealt with strictly,
the police warned.

A police spokesman said the authorities have decided to
