Srinagar: Authorities on Saturday imposed strict restrictions in parts of Srinagar city to prevent a separatist-called protest.

An associate of Hurriyat(G) Muhammad Yousuf Rather alias Yousuf Nadeem was earlier this week shot dead in Budgam district. He was associated with Hurriyat (G).
All Shops, other businesses and public transport remained shut in the city and other district headquarters of the Kashmir Valley.
