Srinagar: District magistrate Pulwama issued a notice asking people to carry lanterns at night in order to avoid any mishap, an official spokesman said.

"Keeping in view the intense area domination undertaken by the security forces, particularly army, the District Magistrate, Pulwama has suggested the people to undertake minimum essential movement at night," he said.

The order said on being challenged, the persons should not run and instead facilitate identification.

"In order to obviate possibility of harm to innocent persons, it is imperative that the populace be sensitised on the issue," it said.

The order comes in the wake of several killings by militants in the south Kashmir district over the past month, including a woman sarpanch candidate in Pakherpora and an office bearer of the ruling National Conference in Andergam village.
