Srinagar: Curfew was on Saturday lifted from four districts of Kashmir and parts of Srinagar city in view of the improving situation in these areas but remained in force in the rest of the Valley as a precautionary measure.

"Curfew has been lifted from Bandipora, Baramulla, Budgam and Ganderbal districts and some parts of Srinagar city in view of the improving situation in these areas," a police official said.

The official said, however, restrictions on assembly of four or more people under Section 144 CrPC will continue in the areas where curfew has been lifted. He said curfew remained in force in Anantnag, Kulgam, Kupwara, Pulwama and Shopian districts of the Valley and eight police station areas of the city.

The situation across the Valley is peaceful so far. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh is scheduled to arrive on a two-day visit later in the day, official sources said.

They said Singh will hold a meeting with the officials of the state soon after his arrival and meet civil society, political leaders and members from trade fraternity later in the afternoon.

The Home Minister has more meetings scheduled tomorrow morning before he flies back to New Delhi, the sources said. Life in Kashmir has been paralysed since July 9, a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces.

Fresh clashes broke out between protestors and security forces in Kashmir yesterday after Friday prayers killing one youth.

As many as 45 persons have been killed and over 3400 others injured in the violent clashes between protestors and security forces following Wani's killing.
