Curfew in Jammu city after protests over Pulwama attack, Army called out
Administration caught yawning

Early Times Report
JAMMU, Feb 15: Curfew was clamped in Jammu city on Friday afternoon following incidents of violence during the shutdown called in protest against the terror attack in South Kashmir's Pulwama yesterday.
Police said an angry mob torched several vehicles after stones were pelted on protesters, who were raising slogans in the densely populated area of the city.
An order of the District Magistrate said the decision was taken in view of prevailing law and order situation in Jammu district. "There is every likelihood of breach of peace, which may lead to acts of arson, targeting vehicles and causing loss of life and property", the order read.
"Three youth were injured in the stone pelting and then the protesters went berserk and damaged around 15 to 20 vehicles. Consequently, police fired smoke shells to control the situation. A local resident said, "The mob set ablaze around 30 vehicles and damaged scores of other vehicles in the area. Consequently, there was a stone pelting in the area.
He informed that sensing trouble policemen resorted to tear-gas shelling and lathicharge to disperse the protestors and avoid a clash between the two groups. "The protesters also smashed windowpanes of some houses," he added.
Additional reinforcement of cops was being sent to the area to quell violent protests. Early on Friday morning, massive anti-Pakistan protests rocked the winter capital, in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack in which 44 Central Reserve Police Force jawans are feared to have been killed.
Meanwhile, questions have also been raised over the incapability of the administration to preempt the situation in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack. "The growing anguish among the people should have alerted the administration to make adequate arrangements of safety and security so that such a situation could be avoided" said Devi Dass, a resident of the old city.
