Authorities on Tuesday imposed restrictions in and around commercial hub Lal Chowk to foil the Muharram procession.

Official sources told the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) that in view of Muharram procession that was scheduled to be taken out from Guru Bazar area today, restrictions were imposed in Maisuma, Abiguzar, Trc, Dalgate, Budshah bridge, Gowkadal and Kralkhud areas.

Muharram processions in Srinagar are banned since the onset of militancy in Kashmir. They were banned by the then governor Jagmohan. Last year scores of mourners were injured in government forces action after they tried take out the processions.

Pertinently, the government had announced that Muharram procession will be allowed to carry out this year after 30 years.

However, later they flip flopped on the decision and said no gatherings except for Independence Day will be allowed.
