Srinagar (NVI): Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for a ‘Janta Curfew’ to combat coronavirus today, Kashmir witnessed strict restrictions with shops shut and people remaining indoors. All markets and establishments except those dealing in essential goods and services remained closed in Srinagar and other parts of the Valley. A large number of security forces personnel have been deployed in all the major junctions of the city and other districts. Yesterday also, streets and roads in the valley wore a deserted look, amid COVID-19 fears. The nationwide lockdown has called for a curfew imposed by Janta (people) on themselves from 7 AM to 9 PM.
