In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Srinagar District Administration has clamped curfew in Srinagar city in view of specific inputs about violent protests tomorrow, on the first anniversary of the revocation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status under Article 370.
Srinagar District Magistrate Shahid Iqbal Choudhary said in an order that the curfew comes into force with immediate effect and shall remain in effect till tomorrow. The District Magistrate further said that the Senior Superintendent of Police has received a series of inputs suggesting that separatist and Pakistan-sponsored groups are planning to observe 5th of August as Black Day and violent action or protests are not ruled out and there are also specific inputs about violent protests endangering public life and property.
Mr Choudhary said, any mass gathering would also be detrimental to efforts related to the containment of COVID-19. He said that the SSP report further suggests that in view of restrictions aimed at COVID-19 containment already in place, the movement and assembly of people have been prohibited. 

Meanwhile, the restrictions previously ordered on account of COVID-19 shall continue thereafter till 8th of August, unless revised earlier.
