Srinagar: Authorities on Saturday lifted curfew from all parts of Kashmir as the Valley limped towards normalcy despite a strike call given by hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference.

"Curfew has been lifted from all parts of Kashmir," a police spokesman said.

He said the situation so far was peaceful with no untoward incident reported from anywhere in the Valley.

Although most of the shops and business establishments around commercial hub of Lal Chowk remained closed, life in Kashmir showed signs of limping towards normalcy, official sources said.

They said shops were open in many localities of Srinagar city and other towns and hamlets in the Valley.

A large number of private vehicles could be seen plying on the roads of the city and other inter-district routes, ignoring the strike call given by Geelani as part of his 10-day agitation calendar, the sources said.

However, public transport continued to remain off the roads, they said.

Kashmir Valley has been in a grip of protests, strikes and curfew since June when a 17-year-old boy was killed by a tear smoke shell fired by police at Rajouri Kadal area of the city.
