Authorities imposed restrictions in various areas of Srinagar 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 at Srinagar Airport.
"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.
Meanwhile, a complete shutdown is being observed across Kashmir valley on the call of JRL.
All shops and other business establishments are closed in city centre Lal Chowk while public transport is off the roads.
