Restrictions to continue till Sunday: DGP

Srinagar, July 19: Director General of Police Ashok Prasad Friday said restrictions on movement of people 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 for at least three days (till Sunday) when the strike would be over,” Prasad told local news gathering agency CNS.
He said 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.
He said the overall the situation in Kashmir remained peaceful 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.
Ashok Prasad while replying to a question 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 while as this year only 50 such incidents have been reported so far.
