Curfew to continue in city areas on Monday
Srinagar: The fresh round of curfew that was enforced on Sunday in parts of Srinagar city, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, following fresh sectarian tension would continue on Monday.
\”Curfew has been imposed in Zadibal and Nowhatta police station areas and Urdu Bazaar police post area as a precautionary measure,\” a police spokesman said.
He said situation remained peaceful in Srinagar including the areas where curfew remained imposed. \”No untoward incident was reported from any place,\” he said adding,
\”curfew will continue in areas of police station Zadibal and Nowhatta and police post Urdu Bazar tomorrow\”.
He said the curfew was in place to prevent further clashes and any possible loss of life or property.
Authorities had on Wednesday enforced a curfew in nine police station areas of the city following sectarian clashes in Hawal area, falling under Zadibal police station.
Though the earlier three-day long restriction was lifted yesterday, it was again imposed in Hawal and adjoining areas after fresh clashes broke out in the area.
So far, there are no reports of any violence in the curfew-bound areas while rest of the city remained peaceful.
