Two youths detained near Lal Chowk area
Srinagar: Two youths were on Sunday detained near the Lal Chowk here as authorities have increased the vigil around the area to prevent BJP`s plan of flag hoisting.
"We have detained two youths as they were moving in a suspicious manner near the Clock Tower in Lal Chowk," a police officer said.
Official sources said the two were BJP activists and carrying a flag for hoisting it on the Clock Tower.
BJP activists might try to hoist the tricolour on the Clock Tower even before the Republic Day in view of the state government`s decision to not allow the party to succeed in its plans, they said.
While the BJP state vice-president Sofi Yousuf was taken into preventive custody last night, six party activists were arrested yesterday as they were found in breach of prohibitory orders in force in the city.
