Restrictions till Sunday: DGP
SRINAGAR, July 19: Director General of Police (DGP), Ashok Prasad, today said that restrictions would continue till Sunday evening.

“Whether curfew would be imposed or not is a secondary question but one thing is clear that restrictions on the movement of people would be there at least for three days till Sunday when strike would be over,” Prasad told a local news agency, CNS, adding that it is better to restrict the movement of people than to put them in danger.

He said the police have no option but to impose either curfew or restrictions to avoid casualties. “What can we do in a situation when separatists call for strikes and protests? We are for the protection for the people and we have to take measures to avoid loss of life,” Prasad said.

DGP stated that overall the situation in Valley remained peaceful in Valley on Friday. “There were protests in Shopian, Baramulla and Ganderbal but they were of lesser intensity. We are going to impose restrictions for at least three days till Sunday,” Prasad said.

While replying to a question, he said militants were always present in Srinagar city. “Was there any time when militants were not present in Srinagar city. Militants keep on changing their hideouts and usually all the attacks carried by militants in Srinagar were done by those who had come from outside,” he said, adding that last year 71 militancy related incidents were reported where as this year only 50 such incidents are reported so far.
