Srinagar witnesses partial restrictions


SRINAGAR :  Following the post Friday prayer protest call given by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) against the US move to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, authorities imposed partial restrictions in Srinagar.

Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik had called for post-Friday prayer protests against the US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The restrictions were imposed in Nowhatta, M.R.Gunj and Safa Kadal areas in old Srinagar, the police said. Mirwaiz Umer Farooq was placed house arrest while Syed Ali Geelani already continues to be under house arrest.

Heavy contingents of police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were deployed in the three areas.
