Restrictions have been imposed in Tral township, in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district, and in the Nowhatta and Maisuma police station areas of Srinagar the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, a police official said.

He said the curbs have been imposed as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order and to avoid any untoward incident.
