Government imposed restrictions in parts of Kashmir Friday to foil a public rally in Anantnag called by the Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) comprising Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Yasin Malik.
Mirwaiz was detained as he stepped out of his Nigeen residence in Srinagar to head towards Anantnag while chairman of the parallel Hurriyat faction Syed Ali Geelani and several other Hurriyat leaders were under house arrest. JKLF chief Yasin Malik remained lodged in Central Jail Srinagar.
Police and CRPF troopers were deployed in large numbers to impose curfew-like restrictions in most parts of Anantnag and Srinagar districts. (Pictures by Zargar Zahoor)
