Srinagar: Authorities on Tuesday imposed restrictions in and around commercial hub Lal Chowk to prevent the Muharram procession.

Official sources said that in view of Muharram procession that was scheduled to be taken out from Abi Guzar today, restrictions were imposed in Maisuma, Abiguzar, Trc, Dalgate, Budshah bridge, Gowkadal, and Kralkhud areas.

Earlier, the Jammu and Kashmir administration had announced that Muharram procession will be allowed to carry out this year after 30 years. Notably, Muharram procession from Abi Guzar is banned since 1989.

However, after the move was questioned by the Shia leaders, the administration stated that concerned Deputy Commissioners will take a call accordingly after reviewing the situation.
