Residents of Dalgate area of Srinagar on Friday accused the paramilitary forces of thrashing pedestrians and imposing severe restrictions on their movement.
They said that barricades have been placed at Badyari Chowk to enforce curfew.
"Nobody was allowed to move on the road. Several pedestrians were thrashed at around 7 am when they went out to buy bread and milk," said a local.
Authorities have imposed curfew-like restrictions in parts of Srinagar to prevent a march to downtown called by the resistance leadership.
