Curfew lifted from Kashmir after 51 days

SRINAGAR: Authorities on Monday lifted curfew from Kashmir after 51 days since the ongoing unrest began on July 9, officials said.

“Curfew has been lifted from the entire Valley. But, it will remain in force in Pulwama town and in areas under the jurisdiction of Nowhatta and M.R.Gunj police stations in Srinagar,” a senior police official said.

The decision to lift curfew was taken at a high level security meeting on Sunday evening, sources said.

An all party delegation comprising senior leaders of political parties is slated to visit Kashmir on September 3.

Union Home minister Rajnath Singh is likely to accompany the delegation.

Meanwhile, separatists here continued their protest despite lifting of the curfew.
