Curfew on in Kashmir, Srinagar tense
Srinagar: Curfew continued for a second day in Jammu and Kashmir`s Bandipora district Sunday following protests after police firing killed a young man, an official said.
The authorities have also imposed restrictions in the old city areas of Srinagar, the summer capital of the state and the urban hub of the separatist campaign.
A police officer told IANS that curfew would continue in Bandipora town, Hajin, Naidkhai, Sumbal and other parts of the district.
Restrictions on pedestrian and vehicular movement were clamped in parts of Srinagar where police and the Central Reserve Police Force were deployed in riot gear.
