Srinagar, Aug 15 - Authorities Friday placed prominent separatist leaders in the Kashmir Valley under house arrest and imposed restrictions in parts of Srinagar ahead of Independency Day celebrations.

As a preventive measure, restrictions were imposed in the Old City areas of Rainawari, Khanyar, Nowhatta, M.R. Gunj and Safa Kadal.

These are preventive measures. There is no restriction on bonafide movement anywhere in the city, a police officer told IANS.
