Security heightened in J&K to prevent separatist protests
Srinagar, March 31: Authorities made heavy deployments of security forces on Friday to prevent separatist-called protests here and in other parts of Jammu and Kashmir.
Police said deployments of police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) have been made in sensitive places to prevent any untoward incidents.
“No curfew has been imposed anywhere in the valley. But adequate security deployments have been made for the day,” a senior police officer said.
The separatists have called for protests after the Friday congregational prayers.
The protests have been called against the killings of three civilians in clashes with the security forces in Budgam district on Tuesday.
Authorities have placed senior separatist leaders, Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umer Farooq under house arrest in Srinagar while Muhammad Yasin Malik has been lodged in the central jail.
No untoward incident was reported from anywhere in the Kashmir Valley on Friday morning .
