Curfew imposed in parts of Kashmir Valley
Srinagar: Authorities have imposed curfew or restrictions on movement of people in most parts of Kashmir Valley to foil plans of separatists to hold protests demanding handing over of the body of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru to his family.
Curfew has been imposed in 11 police station areas of Srinagar city and some other towns of the Valley as a precautionary measure, a police spokesman said on Friday.
He said barring 16 police station areas of the city, restrictions under Section 144 CrPC or curfew were in place in the entire Valley.
Curfew and restrictions were imposed as both factions of Hurriyat conference and JKLF have called for a strike and protests today to press for their demand for return of Guru`s body.
Guru was hanged and buried inside Tihar Jail in Delhi on February 9.
