Afzal hanging: Curfew relaxed in some IHK areas

14 February, 2013

Srinagar: Curfew was on Wednesday lifted from three police station areas in Srinagar while it was relaxed "indefinitely" in five other police station areas even as rest of occupied valley remained under restrictions for the fifth consecutive day.

"Curfew has been lifted from Nigeen, Lal Bazaar and Zakura police station areas in the city," an Indian police spokesman said.

He said curfew has been relaxed "indefinitely" in police stations Ram Munshi bagh, Kothibagh, Saddar, Rajbagh and Shergarhi.

"Restrictions will not be imposed in these areas if the situation remains peaceful," he said. Authorities had relaxed curfew for three hours in these five police station areas last evening and the relaxation period passed off without any untoward incident.

However, the rest of occupied Valley remained under curfew for the fifth consecutive day. Curfew was imposed on Saturday following hanging of a Kashmiri Mohammad Afzal Guru inside Tihar jail in Delhi.

The police spokesman said there were no reports of any untoward incident from anywhere in the Valley so far.

At least five Kashmiri have been killed and dozens others were wounded by Indian forces in the valley.

End.
