Life returned to normal in Srinagar, where authorities had imposed curfew-like restrictions early Friday morning to prevent any violence following call for holding protests by separatists against braid chopping incidents in the Kashmir valley.
The main gates of historic Jamia Masjid where no Friday prayers could be offered due to restrictions are open though large number of the state government forces remained deployed to prevent any violence.
As per police, there are no restrictions in any part of the city today.
Restrictions under Section 144 CrPC had been imposed as a precautionary measure in the areas falling under the jurisdiction of seven police stations in downtown Srinagar.
The Joint Hurriyat Leadership (JRL) had appealed people to hold protests after Friday prayers in their respective areas against braid chopping incidents in the Valley, where over three dozen such incidents were reported for the past one month.
