Parts of Kashmir observed a shutdown on Friday over the controversial remarks by two now-suspended BJP leaders against Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) while the authorities snapped mobile internet as a precautionary measure, reported Press Trust of India.

The government forces have been deployed in strength at sensitive places in the city and elsewhere in the Valley for maintaining law and order, officials told the news agency.

Downtown Srinagar witnessed a complete shutdown with public transport off the roads. However, traffic was plying in Lal Chowk, Batamaloo and adjoining areas with offices and schools remaining open.

Authorities have shut down the internet on mobile devices in some areas as a precautionary measure to stop rumour-mongers, officials said, adding there were no reports of any untoward incident in the Valley so far.
