Srinagar: Curfew was on Friday clamped in Bandipora and Kupwara districts and Sopore town in view of a call given by separatists to hold demonstrations to protest the killing of several youth during clashes with security forces in the past one month.
Elsewhere in the Kashmir Valley, restrictions continued on the movement of people.
The decision to impose curfew in Bandipora and Kupwara districts and Sopore town was taken in view of the decision by hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference to hold demonstrations in all district headquarters, police said.
Police and paramilitary force have been deployed in strength to maintain law and order.
Restrictions on the movement of the people continued in Srinagar, Baramulla district of north Kashmir, Pulwama and Kulgam districts of south Kashmir and Budgam district of
central Kashmir, the police said.
Meanwhile, life continued to remain disrupted in the Valley with shops and educational institutions closed and transport off roads due to the week-long shutdown called by
the hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference led by jailed leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani on July 17.
