"You are advised to instruct the field and subordinate formations that they shall not offer Eid prayers in isolated or general mosques or idgahs," read an advisory. It said police personnel will offer Eid prayers in mosques in district police lines in Srinagar or PCR Kashmir.
"In other districts also, Eid prayers shall be offered in DPL mosques or protected mosques where the safety of your personnel is ensured," the advisory read.
"It is good to take precautions," Director General of Police SP Vaid was quoted as saying by news agency Press Trust of India. "They (police personnel) are my men, I will advise them. They are my children, so we will advise them to take precautions," he said.
Five people have been arrested so far for the killing of the officer.
Calling it a shameful incident, Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti said the police "are showing maximum restraint because they think they are dealing with their own people, but for how long this will continue... It will be difficult if they lose patience."
