Indian policemen chase the People's Political Party Chairman Hilal Ahmed War, in black, as he tried to defy curfew orders to reach the Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jeelan shrine in Srinagar on June 29, 2012.

Normal life across Indian-controlled Kashmir was disrupted for the fifth straight day on Friday as the government imposed strict restrictions on movement of people to prevent protests after a fire at the Sufi shrine, The Associated Press reports.
