Curfew to continue in Kashmir on Friday

Srinagar, March 07: The state government will impose restrictions in various parts of the valley on Friday to thwart possible demonstrations and violent protests in wake of protest call by Mutahida Majlise Mashawrat (MMM).
Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Asghar Samoon said restrictions will be imposed in various parts of Srinagar city apart from Sopore and Baramulla areas.
“Safety of life and property is our responsibility. It is a compulsion for us to impose restrictions in wake of violent protests and stone pelting”, Samoon said while talking to news agency KNS.
The Divisional Commissioner appealed people of valley to cooperate in maintenance of peace. “We need peace to prevail in the valley as children will be heading to schools. Everyone should cooperate in efforts of peace by the government as children’s schooling is a priority for everyone and their studies should not suffer”, he said. He urged parents to advise their wards for desisting from resorting to stone pelting and violent protests for their own safety.
Meanwhile, the divisional commissioner said a case has been lodged against the concerned army unit for the firing incident in which a youth was killed in Baramulla. “We have lodged an FIR against the army under section 302. A magisterial inquiry has been ordered and the team has been asked to submit its report within 4 weeks time”, he added.
The Divisional Commissioner said a police station will be setup in old town Baramulla for better policing in the area apart from maintenance of law and order.
“I will soon convene a meeting in this regard. The Police station will be established as there is no presence of JK police across the cement bridge”, he added.
