Curfew to be imposed in Kashmir amid tension over killing of Hizb militant, Pak asks UN to intervene
The government will impose curfew in seven police station areas of Srinagar on Sunday as a pre-emptive measure to prevent spread of violent protests which took place on Saturday, following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Sabzar Ahmad Bhat in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama.
"Curfew will be imposed tomorrow in seven police station areas of the city as a precautionary measure," Farooq Lone, district magistrate, Srinagar told PTI.
He said the curfew will be imposed in Khanyar, Kralkhud, Maharaj Gunj, Maisuma, Nowhatta, Rainawari and Safakadal.
Lone also said that educational institutions in the city will remain close on Monday.
"The admit cards of students appearing in CET and other competitive examinations tomorrow will be treated as curfew passes. The staff posted as invigilators can use their identity cards for reaching the centres and back home," he added.
