On Friday eve, Curbs ‘haunt’ Kashmir parts again

Srinagar, Sep 06 : For the fifth consecutive Friday, the Jammu and Kashmir administration didn’t allow the congregational prayers at the historic Jamia Masjid in Srinagar even as curbs were imposed in parts of Kashmir, especially downtown parts of Srinagar. The top mainstream and separatist leaders continued to remain confined to their homes for the 33rd straight day.

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

According to news agency, pools of concertina wires were placed on all the major roads of Srinagar’s downtown areas that include Mahraj Gunj, Safa Kadal, Nowhatta, Rainawari, and Khanyar.

Witnesses told that huge deployment of security forces was made in downtown parts with heavy deployment of security forces personnel wearing riot gear to deal with the possible Protestors

A police official told that no untoward incident took place across Kashmir except Soura-Anchaar area where a law and order situation was reported post Friday prayers. Eye-witnesses, however, told that a protest rally was witnessed in Soura and Anchaar area after Friday prayers. The protestors were protesting against the scrapping of Article 370.
