Reports said that the movement of people have been curbed in old Srinagar city and major towns of South Kashmir including Shopian district.

An official said that restrictions and undeclared curfew have been imposed in parts of Srinagar and othr major towns of South Kashmir to maintain law and order following the shutdown call and Shopian March called by seperatists against recent civilian killings.

At different intersections, mobile bunkers have been created while all routes leading to Shopian have been sealed.

Almost all the pro freedom leaders and known activists have either been detained in police stations or put under house arrest.
