Baramulla, Aug 13 (UNI) An indefinite curfew imposed in this and other major towns of north Kashmir on Monday evening continued without any relaxation.

Official sources said there was no relaxation in the curfew and people were facing acute shortage of essentials, particularly milk and other eatables.

Security forces and police personnel remained deployed in all areas, strictly enforcing the curfew orders, they said.

They alleged that even women and children were not being allowed to move out of their houses.

There were few minor incidents of curfew violations in the district.

Baramulla remained in focus for the past three days as thousands of people from different parts of the valley marched to cross over Muzaffarabad through Uri tehsil of this district.

It was on Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road at Sheeri, senior Hurriyat leader Sheikh Abdul Aziz was killed in police firing on Monday.

Sheikh was among thousands of people who joined the Muzaffarabad march call given by both the factions of the Hurriyat Conference and Kashmir Fruit Growers Association (KFGA) in view of the alleged blockade of the Jammu-Srinagar highway and attack on Kashmiri drivers at Jammu.
