Eid in Jammu and Kashmir Highlights: National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval Monday conducted an aerial survey to take stock of the security situation in the Kashmir Valley as locals offered Eid prayers. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and the Jammu and Kashmir Police said that prayers were offered peacefully across local mosques despite restrictions in several locations.
Speaking on similar lines, the state police said that while large gatherings were not allowed in the Valley, people were allowed to visit the neighbouring mosques to offer prayers.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Transport Corporation Monday cancelled the Delhi-Lahore bus service after Pakistan decided to discontinue the service in the wake of India’s decision of revoking the special status for Jammu and Kashmir, news agency PTI reported quoting a statement.
Curfew was reimposed in Srinagar on the eve of Eid even as the administration listed several measures taken to restore normalcy in Jammu and Kashmir. Huge deployment of security forces, concertina wires and barricades were back on the roads and public movement was curbed on Sunday. At several places, police asked vendors to close their stalls and return home.
