SRINAGAR: Life across the Valley was affected on Monday as authorities imposed restrictions in few areas in view of a strike call by separatist groups protesting against landing of army in the Valley on this day in 1947.
Restrictions have been imposed in areas falling under Nowhatta, Khanyar, M.R. Gunj, Zadibal and Safa Kadal police stations to maintain law and order in the city.
Security forces have been deployed in these areas and other sensitive areas of the Valley to thwart any protest demonstrations. Separatist groups, including all factions of Hurriyat Conference, had called a general strike to protest against landing of Army in Kashmir on October 27, 1947.

Reports of shut down have reached from almost all the district and Tehsil headquarters of the valley.
