Police arrested Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF) chief Yasin Malik in Srinagar on Saturday. He was arrested from his residence in order to avoid any security situation in the state.

Restrictions had been imposed in parts of the summer capital on Friday to foil the protest call by separatists against the killing of a civilian in alleged police firing in south Kashmir's Pulwama district.


Srinagar DM Farooq Ahmad Lone told PTI that the movement of people will be controlled in seven police stations namely, Khanyar, MR Gunj, Safakadal, Rainawari, Kralkhud, Nowhatta and Maisuma.

He said the curbs have been imposed as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order.
