Jammu, Jul 4 (UNI) The administration today relaxed curfew for an hour in select police station areas of the winter capital, rocked by violent protests against the revocation of the SASB land transfer order, to enable the people to purchase essential commodities.
''Curfew was relaxed for an hour from 1700 hrs to 1800 hrs in Bakshi Nagar and Janipur police station areas and will be relaxed from 1800 hrs to 1900 hrs in Gandhi Nagar, Trikuta Nagar and Satwari areas,'' official sources told UNI.
The authorities were reviewing the situation periodically.
Indefinite curfew was imposed in the Jammu on Tuesday after massive protests broke out against the revocation of the land transfer order to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board(SASB).
More than 60 people were injured yesterday in stepped up protests and life in Jammu province came to a grinding halt with the entire region, including remote villages, observing a complete shutdown in support of the ''Bharat Bandh'' call given by the VHP against the state government's decision.
