Srinagar: Strict restrictions have been imposed in the entire Kashmir Valley ahead of August 5 which marks the completion of one year of Abrogation of Article 370 — the provision which granted the special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.

The decision was taken after a core group meeting of security held on Monday in Srinagar after specific inputs that separatists and Pakistan sponsored groups were planning to hold protests which could endanger the law and order situation in the Kashmir province.

Former CM and NC leader Omar Abdullah tweeted, “The preparations start a full 24 hours earlier this year compared to 2019 with Srinagar, and I presume the same is being done across the Valley, being placed under strict curfew from tonight for the next two days.”
