Restrictions were enforced in Rajouri Kadal and adjacent areas in old Srinagar city where a 61-year-old man died in Eidgah area on Tuesday after he lost control on his two-wheeler vehicle during clashes between stone-pelting mobs and security forces.

The separatists had asked people to start normal activities from Tuesday afternoon, but angry youths showed up at various places in Srinagar and elsewhere forcing the shops to remain shut.

Many masked youths placed obstructions on old city roads and the outskirts to ensure the separatists’ call to resume half day’s normalcy was defied.
