Srinagar, Aug 19 (UNI) Life returned to normal in the Kashmir valley today after remaining paralysed for 15 days in protest against the alleged economic blockade, attack on Kashmiri drivers in Jammu and killing of processionists, including senior Hurriyat leader Sheikh Abdul Aziz in police and CRPF firing.

Shops and business establishments reopened here this morning and traffic on all routes was plying normally after the Coordination Committee (CC), spearheading the present agitation, said there would be no strike for three days from today.

However, the committee, an alliance of different organisations, including both the factions of the Hurriyat Conference (HC) asked to people to join the eidgah chalo on Friday where fateha will be offered to martyrs, including Sheikh Abdul Aziz.

Schools, colleges and other educational institutions also reopened this morning and work in government offices and other public undertakings was resumed.

Similar reports were also received from Baramulla, Bandipora, Sopore, Anantnag, Badgam, Pulwama in other major towns and tehils of the valley.
