Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir government will impose Section 144 in several areas of Kupwara district from February 9 to 11 to prevent law and order problems on the first death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru.


The prohibitory orders will be imposed in Kupwara town, Trehgam, Kralpora, Sogam, Lalpora, Drugmulla, Handwara town, Langate town and Kralgund from February 9 to 11, 2014, an official spokesman said.

Section 144 of CrPC prohibits assembly of four or more persons in a public place without prior permission of the concerned District Magistrate.

Although the spokesman did not give any reason for imposition of the prohibitory orders, official sources said the step was taken to prevent any protests on February 9, which will mark the first death anniversary of Guru.
