Police Tuesday detained separatist group Duktaran-e-Millat’s chairperson, Asiya Andrabi, from the old city while accusing her of provoking youths to indulge in violence. Locals said Andrabi was detained from Habba Kadal’s Kral Khud along with a few others.

The police said 57 people were arrested from different parts of Kashmir Valley in the last 24 hours and blamed
protesters for setting on fire two auto-rickshaws for violating the strike call given by separatists.

Apart from two incidents of arson reported from Srinagar and a stray incident of stone pelting in Bandipore, the situation remained peaceful on Tuesday, the police said.

Watch what else is making news:

“Shops in some parts of the city were open and a large number of vendors were on the streets. Scores of vehicles
were out in the main towns and on the inter district roads of the Valley,” a police spokesperson said.

The official said miscreants, in an attempt to disturb the situation, set on fire two auto-rickshaws — at
Bhagwanpora, Kral Khud, and at Rainawari near Polytechnic College, Saidakadal. “Police are searching for those involved,” the official said.
