Barring Minor Incidents, Eid Peaceful In Jammu And Kashmir, Say Police

NEW DELHI: The festival of Eid-al-Adha went peacefully in Jammu and Kashmir today, the government said, sharing photos of the mosques in and around Srinagar and the size of the congregation in surrounding towns. But the mood was subdued as the streets of Srinagar remained deserted under the watchful eyes of the security personnel.

In a statement, the Home Ministry said large prayer congregations were seen at many places of Kashmir valley including Baramulla, where 10,000 people gathered, and in Bandipora, around where 5,000 people took part in the prayers.

In the evening, senior city police officer SP Pani said there were a “couple of minor localised incidents” which were “handled very professionally”. “In these incidents, there is only a couple of injury reported and otherwise situation in the entire valley is normal,” he added.

The state administration reiterated its denial of the city witnessing any major protest as reported by a section of the media, saying “not a single bullet has been fired by the security agencies”.
