Security deployment has been increased in other towns of Kashmir Valley. There is tension in the Valley since the march is planned after the Friday prayers.

On Thursday, too, normal life was disrupted in Srinagar following a shutdown called by Geelani. All shops, educational institutions, banks, public transport and other business establishments remained closed in Srinagar because of the two-day shutdown beginning on Wednesday called by Geelani.
