Authorities on Tuesday relaxed curfew for three hours in five police station areas here, which largely remained unaffected from the protests against the hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammed Afzal Guru.

“Curfew has been relaxed in the areas under the jurisdiction of Ram Munshi Bagh, Rajbagh, Kothibagh, Shergarhi and Saddar police stations from 4 p.m.,” a police spokesman said.

The situation during the relaxed hours will be reviewed before taking a decision on providing similar relief in other areas of the Valley, he said.
