New Delhi: Plans are afoot to deploy additional contingents of security forces and impose prohibitory orders under section 144 CrPC in sensitive areas of the Kashmir Valley in view of the forthcoming Eid al-Adha celebrations.

Officials said a "concerned" central government has chalked out a plan of action to ensure peace and security during Eid al-Adha or Bakr-Eid on September 12 with steps like avoiding large congregations on the streets and advising people to celebrate at home.

 

They said additional forces are expected to be deployed in the Valley to beef up security measures.

Section 144 of CrPC (unlawful assembly) in selected and sensitive areas in the valley would be imposed to keep gathering of crowds under check.

Normal life has remained paralysed for 63rd consecutive day on Friday in the unrest-hit Valley where 73 persons have been killed in the violence that erupted after militant Burhan Wani was gunned down by security forces.

The separatists groups have extended the shutdown call till September 16.
