Srinagar: Authorities on Sunday imposed restrictions in Srinagar’s old city for the second successive day in view of ‘Eidgah chalo’ called by the Joint Resistance Leadership on Monday.
The old city has been kept out of bounds ahead of death anniversaries of Moulvi Mohammad Farooq and Abdul Gani Lone on May 21.
Forces personnel were deployed in strength in the area and concertina wires have been put in place to prevent people from staging protests.
Moulvi Mohammad Farooq was killed in 1990, while Lone was killed in 2002 while commemorating 12th anniversary of Farooq at Eidgah in Srinagar.
