Srinagar, Aug 29: Indefinite curfew continued in Srinagar and other major towns of the Kashmir Valley for the sixth day without any relaxation so far today.

However, curfew was relaxed in phases on August 27 and yesterday during which people were seen purchasing essentials in the city and other areas.

Officials said there was no report of any curfew violation from any part of the Valley since last evening.

They said curfew will be relaxed in phases again today to enable people to purchase essentials.

Curfew was imposed on August 24, following ''Lal Chowk'' march call given by the Coordination Committee (CC), spearheading the present agitation.

However, thousands of people took to the streets and clashed with the security forces, in which about 8 people were killed and over 100 wounded Monday.

Residents of different parts of the city and outskirts told mediapersons on phone that curfew was being strictly enforced today.

We were not allowed to bring bread and milk as was the case during the past few days,'' they said.

Despite government claimed that milkman and vegetable sellers would be provided curfew passes for Milk distribution, nothing was seen on the ground, people alleged.
