Protest demo in Kashmir

 According to the District Magistrate Shopian, there will be curfew on 19 September 2016 in village Vehil and its adjacent areas from dawn to dusk in view of protest-cum-Vehil chaloo call.

Meanwhile, a spokesman of the Zonal Police Headquarters Kashmir today said that apart from few stone pelting incidents in Kulgam, Kupwara and Awantipora, overall situation remained under control across the valley.

The spokesman said that minor stone pelting incidents were reported from Sadoora in Kulgam, Padgampora in Awantipora and Panzgam in Kupwara. “At these places miscreants assembled on roads and pelted stones on police and security force deployments. They were dispersed by using mild force,” he said adding there was increased vehicular movement on city roads as well as between various districts and towns.

The spokesman said that restrictions under section 144 CrPC remained in force in the valley. However, curfew was imposed under the areas of some police stations in Srinagar city and in Shopian town only.

The spokesman said that continuing its drive against the trouble mongers involved in damaging civilian vehicles, shops, houses and placing obstructions on roads and lanes, police arrested 56 miscreants during the last 24 hours.
