Members of the bar association protested in Srinagar on Monday against the ongoing violence in Kishtwar, seeking the safety of the Muslim community in the region.

The clashes broke out in the Kulleed area on Friday and spread rapidly to adjoining districts. The curfew remained in force in the violence-hit Kishtwar district on Monday.

Police authorities have clamped curfew in three more districts in the tense Jammu region and the army staged flag marches as the J-K government made violence-hit Kishtwar out of bounds for politicians. BJP leader Arun Jaitley was detained at the airport and turned back.
