Srinagar: Amid possibility of protest and violence on beef ban orders in Kashmir, authorities have imposed certain restrictions in the area.

A senior police officer informed, “Restrictions have been imposed in seven police station areas of Rainawari, Nowhatta, Khanyar, M.R. Gunj, Safa Kadal, Kralkhud and Maisuma in Srinagar as a preventive measure.”

Police and paramilitary forces have been heavily deployed at sensitive areas in the city and other major cities and towns of Kashmir Valley.

Authorities took measures after a protest shutdown has been called by the separatists against the ban order on slaughter and sale of beef in the state on Saturday.

Further shops, educational institutions, public transport and other businesses will remain close in the city on Saturday. However, government offices, banks and post offices will function with lower attendance.

Kashmir University has postponed all the exams scheduled for Saturday.

Senior separatist leaders including Syed Ali Geelani, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Muhammad Yasin Malik have been placed under house arrest to prevent their participation in protests.

No untoward incident has so far been reported from anywhere in Kashmir Valley.

Earlier this week, the Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), imposed a ban on the sale of meat for four days. A similar ban, but for the whole 8 days, was imposed by Mira Bhayander Municipal Corporation in Thane. However the duration of the ban was halved after widespread criticism across the state.

Similarly, Rajasthan has also imposed a meat ban for four days. Chattisgarh has too restrictions on chicken and meat in the state till September 19. While Gujarat has already banned sale and slaughter of meat in the state due to celebration of Paryushana festival.

Recently, Haryana became fifth BJP-ruled state to join the ban spree. Local bodies in the state were ordered to shut slaughter houses for five days.
