As the unrest deepened Sunday and a 22-year-old protester died, bringing the week`s death toll to four, police and paramilitary soldiers turned out in full force in Srinagar, the region`s main city, in an attempt to enforce what amounted to an undeclared curfew.
``We`re not allowing anybody to come out on the streets,`` said Hilal Ahmed, an officer leading a contingent of police and paramilitary troops in Srinagar.
