Ludhiana: Curfew was Tuesday relaxed in this
violence-hit industrial town of Punjab with the situation
returning to normalcy, a senior police official said.

"The curfew has been relaxed during the day in all the 18
police stations of the district. The situation is completely
normal," Ludhiana`s Senior Superintendent of Police, S S Gill
said here.

Life is returning to normalcy as all shops, commercial
establishments and educational institutions opened, including
Punjab Agricultural University, Tuesday, he said.

Gill said though police continued to remain deployed in
strength at sensitive points, no untoward incident had been
reported from anywhere so far.

Yesterday, the Punjab bandh call given by some radical
Sikh organisations to protest Saturday`s violence at Ludhiana
in which one person was killed had evoked mixed response.
