Curfew Remains in Force in Parts of Srinagar

Curfew remained in force in parts of Srinagar for the third day today as a precautionary measure in the wake of the killing of a youth by alleged security forces' firing on Wednesday.

"Curfew will continue in five police station areas of Khanyar, Nowhatta, Rainawari, M R Gunj and Safakadal in interior Srinagar city," a spokesman of the district administration said.

He said security forces have been deployed in strength in other areas to maintain law and order.

A youth, Bashir Ahmad Bhat, was killed on Wednesday when security forces allegedly opened fire to chase away stone-pelting protesters.

The spokesman said the administration will take a decision on relaxing the curfew after assessing the situation in the afternoon.

Meanwhile, people in some other parts of the Kashmir Valley observed a shutdown to protest the killing.
