The Centre on Sunday said there are no restrictions on movement of any individual, including the members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“At present, there are no restrictions on movement but for the security advisories to maintain the law and order situation and no person is under House arrest in Jammu and Kashmir for reasons not related to public health guidelines,” he said in written response to a question.

Reddy said there are no restrictions on movement of any individual, including the protectees of the Peoples Democratic Party.

“Considering the law and order and security situation of a particular area, it is imperative that prior intimation is given by the protected persons regarding their movements etc.,” he said.
