Curfew lifted from Pulwama town in J&K
SRINAGAR: Authorities today lifted four-day curfew from Pulwama town in south Kashmir following improvement in law and order situation in the area, officials said.
“Curfew has been lifted from the affected areas this morning,” the officials said.
They said senior officials of the district administration and police are monitoring the situation in the area.
Curfew was imposed in Pulwama town on Friday following massive protests against firing by security forces that resulted in injuries to seven civilians.
The security forces had opened fire at Pulwama chowk, 32 km from here, to make way for vehicles carrying four persons including two Army officers who were injured in a gunbattle with two Lashkar-e-Taiba militants in a nearby village.
Both the Army and police are claiming that their personnel did not fire at the people.
The state government has ordered a magisterial probe into the incident.
