SRINAGAR: On Tuesday curfew was lifted across Kashmir, except from six police station limits of Srinagar, in view of the improving situation, even as normal life remained disrupted in the Valley for the 74th straight day. A police official said, 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. He said curfew was clamped in Harwan Police Station areas on Tuesday in view of the fourth day of mourning of a boy killed in security forces’ action on Friday. The curbs on the movement of people were lifted, from other areas where curfew was in force yesterday, because of the improving situation, the official said. Except for a few stray incidents of stone pelting in Sopore and Shopian, overall situation remained under control across the Valley yesterday and there was increased traffic and movement of people between various districts and towns of the Valley including in some areas of Srinagar city, the official said. But he said that restrictions on the assembly of people under Section 144 CrPc continued to remain in force in the Valley. Meanwhile, normal life continued to remain paralysed in Kashmir for the 74th consecutive day due to restrictions and separatist sponsored strike. The separatists, who are spearheading the current agitation in the Valley, have extended the protest programme till September 22. They have also asked people to observe Tuesday as Women’s Day. The separatists have not announced any period of relaxation in the strike for the week. Shops, business establishments and petrol pumps continued to remain shut, while public transport was off the roads. Schools, colleges and other educational institutions also continued to remain shut. From Monday night postpaid mobile telephony services were restored, while the outgoing calls on prepaid numbers continued to remain snapped across the Valley. Mobile Internet services also remained suspended. The unrest in the valley started following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces in South Kashmir on July 8. So far nearly 81 people, including two cops, have been killed.  ]]>
