"Adequate deployments of police and Central Reserve Police Force have been made to maintain law and order in the city," police said.

The sit-in called in Maisuma area adjacent to the Lal Chowk was to highlight plight of prisoners in different jails of the state. Separatists in the Valley had called for a shutdown last week after a teenager was killed during clashes with security forces in Pulwama.
