Srinagar: Curfew was on Saturday lifted from six police station areas of the city but normal life remained affected in Kashmir for the 106th straight day due to the separatist-sponsored strike.

Curfew was imposed on Friday in six police station areas of the city.

A police official said the situation in the summer capital Srinagar and elsewhere in the Valley was under control, even as a youth died during clashes between protestors and security forces in Budgam district of central Kashmir yesterday.

The official, however, said restrictions on assembly of four or more people were in place throughout the valley for maintaining law and order.

Security forces have been deployed in strength at vulnerable spots and along the main roads to as a precautionary measure, the official said.

Meanwhile, normal life remained affected in Kashmir due to the strike.

Shops and business establishments remained shut in the Valley, but are expected to open today as separatists have given a 14-hour relaxation in the shutdown from 5 PM.

The ongoing unrest in Kashmir has affected the education as schools, colleges and other educational institutions continue to remain shut in the Valley.

The government has decided to hold board examinations as per the schedule next month, drawing criticism from students and parents who accused it of being insensitive to lack of academic activity due to shutdown.

As many as 85 people, including two cops, have been killed and several thousand others injured in the ongoing unrest in the valley.
