Srinagar: Curfew was lifted from the entire Kashmir Valley Sunday morning following improvement in the situation after days of violence, prompting people to come out in large numbers to buy essentials.


Shoppers flocked the markets and businesses reopened in Srinagar and other parts of the Valley, officials said.


"There is no curfew in any part of the Valley today," a police spokesman told PTI.

Curfew was withdrawn from three districts of the state -- Budgam, Gandarbal and Kupwara -- and some localities of Srinagar yesterday following improvement in the situation.

Police said curfew has now been withdrawn from the districts of Anantnag, Srinagar, Baramulla, Kulgam, Bandipora, Shopian and Pulwama.


For the first time since July 30, no injuries were sustained by anybody during protests held at many places in the valley, which generally remained peaceful.


Traffic snarls were seen at many places as people came out to stock supplies. Schools, colleges, banks and private offices reopened and public transport plied on roads.


Most petrol pumps, especially in central Kashmir's Badgam District, were running dry for the last two days, as the oil tankers organisation refused to bring in more supplies unless they were compensated for the damage suffered by them during protests.
