Restrictions in Srinagar to prevent separatist-called protests
Authorities imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar city on Monday to prevent separatist-called protests, police said. Separatist conglomerate, Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) headed by Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik, have called for a valley-wide protest shutdown against the killing of three over ground workers (OGWs) and a militant during a gunfight in Shopian district on Sunday.
According to the military, the gunfight occurred after a mobile vehicle check post (MVCP) of the Army was fired upon. Another civilian’s body identified as Gowhar Ahmad Lone, 24, was found on Monday morning some 250 metres away from Sunday’s gunfight site.
