Srinagar: Authorities imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar city on Monday to prevent separatist-called protests against growing incidents of braid chopping in the Kashmir Valley.

According to the police, restrictions were imposed in the areas of Khanyar, Rainawari, Nowhatta, M.R. Gunj, Safa Kadal, Maisuma and Kralkhud.

Shops, public transport and educational institutes remained closed here and also in other major cities and towns of the valley.

Private transport, however, moved normally at places where restrictions were not imposed.

Over a dozen incidents of braid chopping have been reported from different parts of the Valley during the last one month but nobody has been arrested.
