Srinagar: Life in the city on Saturday returned
to normal after authorities lifted curfew that was imposed in
several parts of the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir to
maintain law and order in view of Muharram processions.

Traffic was back on the roads and all business
establishments were open.

Authorities had yesterday imposed curfew in areas
falling under the jurisdiction of seven police station areas
in the city to maintain law and order in view of the
processions.

An official spokesman said Shia Muslims held mourning
processions in various districts of Kashmir Valley except in
Abi Guzar locality in central Srinagar where authorities
had imposed curfew.
