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.
