Srinagar: Authorities imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar on Friday to prevent a Muharram procession, police said. The shia procession will start from the Guru Bazar locality and would come to an end at the Dalgate area.

Authorities have not allowed the procession since 1990, after separatist violence started in Kashmir.
