The Srinagar administration had, on August 3 evening,  imposed a curfew in the city citing intelligence inputs of violent protests.

The Centre had, on August 5 last year, revoked J&K's special status under Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

"There are specific inputs about violent protests endangering public life and property," the order had said.
