Srinagar – Authorities Wednesday imposed restrictions in some areas of ! Srinagar city to prevent Shia Muharram processions.

“Restrictions have been imposed by district magistrate of Srinagar in Kothibagh, Maisuma, Batmaloo, Karan Nagar and Sheheedgunj areas today (Wednesday).”

“Vehicular movement and pedestrian passage has been restricted in these areas, although there is no restrictions on movements of patients and other emergencies,” a senior police officer told IANS.
