Restrictions extended to entire Srinagar on Burhan’s death anniversary

    SRINAGAR:  Restrictions have been extended to the entire Srinagar as a precautionary measure to prevent any law and order problem today, where separatists have given a strike call on the first death anniversary of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) commander Burhan Wani.
    Officials told  that restrictions imposed in areas falling under five police stations of Nowhatta, MR Gunj, Rainawari, Khanyar and Safakadal in Shehar-e-Khaas (SeK) and downtown Srinagar yesterday, have been extended to the entire district.
    Both the factions of Hurriyat Conference (HC) and the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) had called for a strike today on the death anniversary of Burhan.
    Killing of Burhan triggered massive clashes, which lasted for over six months and left 100 civilians dead and thousands injured in security force action.
    About 2500 security force personnel were also injured in these clashes. (UNI)
