Authorities on Tuesday imposed curfew in Sopore township of Baramulla district of Kashmir Valley to prevent any law and order problem after a youth was killed and three others injured when security forces allegedly opened fire to disperse a stone-pelting mob on Monday.
“Curfew has been imposed in Sopore town to prevent any law and order problem,” a police spokesman said.
He said there are no restrictions in any other part of Kashmir.
However, normal life elsewhere in the Valley was disturbed due to a strike call by separatist groups to protest the killing.
Condemning the killing, both factions of Hurriyat Conference have called for a shutdown in the Valley.
