Curfew was Tuesday lifted across Kashmir, except from six police station areas of Srinagar, in view of the improving situation, even as normal life remained disrupted in the Valley for the 74th straight day.
Curfew remains in force in five police station areas of downtown (interior city) and Harwan in Srinagar, while the curbs have been lifted from elsewhere in the Valley, a police official said.
He said curfew was clamped in Harwan Police Station areas today in view of the fourth day of mourning of a boy killed in security forces’ action on Friday.
The official said the curbs on the movement of people were lifted, from other areas where curfew was in force yesterday, because of the improving situation.
He, however, said that restrictions on the assembly of people under Section 144 CrPc continued to remain in force in the Valley.
All educational institutions, public transport, main markets and other businesses are shut. However there is ample movement of private transports in the civil lines area of the summer capital.
