The curbs under Section 144 CrPc which prohibits assembly of five or more people have been imposed in Kupwara town, Kralpora, Trehgam and Lalpora Sogam, Ghulam Mohammad Dar, District Magistrate, Kupwara, told PTI.

He said the situation in the district was normal and there were no reports of any untoward incident so far.

The restrictions were imposed to maintain peace in view of the protests after a civilian Mohammad Yousuf Bhat died in security forces firing on the demonstrators on Thursday.

The protesters were demanding the bodies of the two militants who were killed in retaliatory firing after they attacked an artillery unit of an army garrison at Panzgam on Thursday.

Three soldiers, including an officer, were killed by the militants in the pre-dawn attack before two assailants were neutralised by the security forces while the third managed to escape in an injured condition.
