Curfew Lifted From Some Parts of Kashmir After 51 Days
Some areas of the valley including Pulwama, M.R. ganj police station area and Nowhatta town police station are still facing some restrictions.
Srinagar: After 51 days of unrest in the Valley following Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani's death, curfew has been lifted from most parts of Kashmir.
However, Pulwama, MR Gunj police station area and Nowhatta town police station are still under curfew.
The decision to lift the curfew comes two days after Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti met Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the situation in the state. Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh is likely to lead an all-party delegation which to the Valley on September 3.
Singh on Sunday reviewed the situation with BJP President Amit Shah, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and Minister of State in the PMO Jitendra Singh and discussed with them the modalities of the all-party delegation's visit.
In his 'Mann Ki Baat' programme on Sunday, Modi spoke about the Kashmir situation on Sunday and appealed for calm in the state. "Ekta (unity) and Mamata (affection) was the crux of all interactions I had recently on Kashmir situation," he said.
Modi said those pushing the youth towards stone pelting in Kashmir will someday have to answer them. He also said that all political parties spoke in one voice on Kashmir, sending out a strong message to the world as well as the separatists.
Nearly 70 people have been killed in the violence that started on July 9, a day after Burhan Wani was killed in a gunfight. Over 11,000 others including civilians and security personnel have been injured during this period.
