Vastavam web: Normal life in the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir was Wednesday affected due to restrictions imposed by authorities in certain areas of the city as a precautionary measure to regulate Muharram processions, police said. Restrictions were imposed under Section 144 CrPC in police station areas of Shaheedgunj, Batmaloo, Shergari, Kothibagh, Ram Munshi Bagh, Maisuma and Kralkhud, a police spokesman said.

He said certain roads leading towards these areas have been blocked for vehicular movement. Authorities have also shut down all educational institutions in the city. The restrictions imposed by authorities without prior information threw normal life out of gear in Srinagar city.
