SRINAGAR: Curfew remained in force in some areas of Srinagar and two towns of south Kashmir on Wednesday, while restrictions on the assembly of people in rest of the Valley continued for the 47th consecutive day in the wake of violence following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.
Curfew is in force in five police station areas of downtown city and Batamaloo and Maisuma areas in the uptown, a police official said.
He said, in south Kashmir, curfew continued in Anantnag town and was imposed in Pampore town on Wednesday to maintain law and order.
On Tuesday, the authorities lifted curfew from most areas of Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, in view of the improving situation.
The lifting of the curbs allowed movement of people in the city as there was increased traffic of private cars and auto-rickshaws in and around Lal Chowk city centre yesterday.
However, the official said, restrictions on the assembly of four or more people under Section 144 of the CrPC will continue in the rest of the Valley to maintain law and order.
Meanwhile, normal life remained paralysed for the 47th consecutive day due to curfew, restrictions and separatist sponsored.
