After Article 370 of the Constitution was revoked in Jammu and Kashmir Dilbag Singh, Jammu and Kashmir police chief said on Saturday that there was “not a single incident of violence in Jammu and Kashmir today”.
J&K Director General Police Dilbag Singh in a video said that “The police have not fired a single bullet so far in six days. People should not believe any mischievous and motivated news regarding firing incidents in the valley.”
Dilbag Singh also said that prohibitory orders were lifted from 10 districts in Jammu.
“10 districts in Jammu are free of any restrictions. Only five towns in Jammu have some form of restriction on them. Those will be removed gradually as well, Dilbag Singh said.
Imtiyaz Hussein, a J&K police officer, tweeted a video from his Twitter handle, showing pictures of the Lal Chowk, Dal Lake area, Batmaloo, Jehangir Chowk, Ganderbal, Baramulla and Pulwama areas. While the shops were closed, many people were on the roads going about their daily chores.
Restrictions were imposed into the Valley, hours before the Narendra Modi announced the revocation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution (which grants special status to J&K).
