Authorities on Saturday imposed restrictions on the assembling of people in three police station areas in Srinagar as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order.

The restrictions have been imposed in three police station areas in old city, an order issued by district magistrate (deputy commissioner) Srinagar, Farooq Ahmad Lone, said in Srinagar.

It said the restrictions have been imposed in the police station areas of Nowhatta, MR Gunj and Safakadal.

The curbs have been imposed as a precautionary measure to avoid any untoward incident, the order read, without giving any reasons.

However, a police official said the restrictions have been imposed in view of “Hafta-e-Shahdat” (martyrs week) programme of moderate Hurriyat Conference led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
