New Delhi/Jammu: Governor’s Rule was on Saturday imposed in Jammu and Kashmir, which is without a government following the death of Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed.

“Governor’s Rule has been imposed in the State of Jammu and Kashmir,” said a union home ministry statement.

Informed sources in the state earlier said that Governor’s Rule had been imposed, but Raj Bhavan sources in Jammu told IANS that no such notification had been issued.

Though Sayeed’s daughter Mehbooba Mufti was set to succeed him as chief minister of the PDP-BJP coalition government in the state, she had refused to take oath before the traditional four-day period of mourning ended.

Sayeed had died in New Delhi’s AIIMS hospital on Thursday. (IANS)

Srinagar, October 27, 2017 : Authorities imposed restrictions in various areas on Friday to prevent separatist-called protests to mark the Accession Day of Jammu and Kashmir to India.

Joint resistance leadership (JRL) of separatist leaders — Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Yasin Malik — have asked people to observe October 27 as a “black day” in Kashmir.

It was on this day in 1947 that the Indian Army landed in Srinagar Airport following the accession of the state.

“Restrictions under section 144 of CrPC will remain in force in Nowhatta, M.R.Gunj, Safa Kadal, Rainawari, Khanyar, Kralkhud and Maisuma,” a police officer said.

Heavy contingents of the state police and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in full riot gear were seen disallowing pedestrian and vehicular movement in these areas.

Railway services in the valley have also been suspended on Friday as a precautionary measure. (IANS)
