Kashmir remained shut and normal life paralysed as curfew continued in some parts of Srinagar and two towns in south Kashmir.
Restrictions on the assembly of people were in force in the rest of the Valley, where life remained paralysed for the 51st consecutive day today.
Curfew remained in force in five police station areas of downtown Srinagar, a police source said.
It said the curfew was lifted from many areas of Srinagar today – two days after it was clamped in the entire city to thwart proposed marches by separatist groups to Eidgah in old city on Friday and towards Army headquarters at Badami Bagh cantonment area in Srinagar on Saturday.
The source said curfew also continued in the two south Kashmir towns of Pulwama and Pampore.
At least 25 persons were injured in clashes between protesters and security forces in Kashmir yesterday as the death toll hit 68 in the ongoing unrest, in the wake of killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces on July 8.
