Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar on Wednesday to prevent a Muharram procession here. Fearing violence, authorities in the valley have not allowed the main Muharram — Islamic mourning — procession ever since the separatist armed struggle started here in the 1990s.
“Restrictions under section 144 of CrPc (Code of Criminal Procedure) was imposed in parts of Srinagar and other areas in the valley to maintain law and order today (Wednesday),” a senior police officer said.
