Authorities on Saturday lifted curfew from all parts of Kashmir as the Valley limped towards normalcy despite a strike call given by the hardline faction of the 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 other parts 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 hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani as part of his 10-day agitation calendar, the sources said.

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