Srinagar: Barring Anantnag town in South
Kashmir, curfew was Wednesday lifted from the entire Kashmir
Valley with people flocking markets to buy essentials.

Apprehending law and order problem in Anantnag where
a youth was allegedly killed in firing by security forces on
August 30, curfew remained in force in the town, official
sources said.

Elsewhere in the Valley, normal life resumed after
hardline Hurriyat Conference led by Syed Ali Shah Geelani

Shops and other commercial establishments opened early
in the morning after remaining closed for the past four days.
Schools and other educational institutions also opened today
while all modes of public transport could be seen plying on
the roads.

stocking up essentials. Serpentine queues were seen outside
banks and ATMs.

locality, where a youth was shot at and critically injured by
a policeman on August 30.

tear smoke shell near Rajouri Kadal area of the old city.
Street protests broke out in the Valley which has claimed 65
lives so far.
