 Independent legislator and AIP chief Er Rasheed was detained on Friday after he tried to march towards Jamia Masjid in Downtown Srinagar to offer Friday prayers.

Reports said that Rasheed was detained along with several of his workers ahead of Jamia Masjid in Nowhatta.

Interestingly, congregational Friday prayers have not been allowed at the historic mosque since the killing of Burhan Wani in July earlier this year.
