Life was disrupted in Kashmir on Friday due to a strike called by separatists to protest against the landing of the army in the Valley on this day in 1947 to repulse the invasion by Pakistan.

Authorities have imposed restrictions in parts of the summer capital here to maintain law and order.

Restrictions have been imposed in seven police station areas of Srinagar, District Magistrate (deputy commissioner) Srinagar, Syed Abid Rashid Shah told PTI.

Shah said curbs have been imposed in the jurisdiction of police station areas of Rainawari, Nowhatta, Khanyar, Safakdal, M R Gunj, Kralkhud and Maisuma.

He said the restrictions on the assembly of people have been imposed to maintain law and order.

Separatists in the Valley have called for a shutdown to protest against the landing of the Army in Kashmir on October 27, 1947.

The army had launched an operation, a day after the then Maharaja of Jammu and Kashmir Hari Singh signed the instrument of accession with the Union of India, to repulse tribal raiders from Pakistan.

The separatist trio -- Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik -- have asked people to observe a black day today.

Shops, private offices, fuel stations and other business establishments were shut in Srinagar, while public transport was sparse, officials said.

They said similar reports were received from other district headquarters of Kashmir.
