Curfew restrictions partially relaxed in Valley, other towns

Authorities on Wednesday relaxed curfew restrictions in some areas of Srinagar and other towns of the Kashmir Valley to enable residents to buy essential commodities.

‘Curfew restrictions were relaxed in entire Badgam district from 10 am  to 12 pm on Wednesday. It has also been relaxed in Kakapora, Lasipora and Rajpora areas of Pulwama district from 9 am onwards,’ a senior police officer said.

‘In Awantipora town of Pulwama district, it has been relaxed from 10 am onwards. In Kupwara district, curfew relaxation started in Kralpora, Lalpora and Sogam areas from 10 am,’ he said.

‘In Srinagar city, restrictions have been relaxed from areas falling under police stations of Rajbagh, Lal Bazaar, Nigeen, Zakoora, Panthachowk, Bemina, Nowgam and Parimpora from 9 am onwards on Wednesday,’ the officer added. The relaxation period could be extended in these areas depending on the law and order situation.

In old city areas of Srinagar, north Kashmir’s Baramulla and Sopore towns, no relaxation has been given in the curfew that was imposed there on last Saturday.

Mediapersons who went to assess the situation in old city areas said tension is palpable in these areas.

Some local newspapers published their print editions Wednesday after remaining off the stands for two days.

Editors of some others who could not print their editions said because of non-availability of staff and circulation hindrances, they could not resume their publications although the authorities had asked them to continue with the publications.
