Srinagar, Oct 6 (UNI) Indefinite curfew remained imposed in Kashmir, including the summer capital Srinagar for the second day today, in view of the 'Lal Chowk chalo' call given by the Coordination Committee (CC), spearheading the present agitation in the Valley.

Till now, there was no report of any violation from any part of the Valley. However, a Baramulla report said that some people were peacefully protesting in the old towns.

According to officials, no relaxation has so far been made in the areas where curfew was clamped at 0500 hrs yesterday to foil any attempt by people to reach Srinagar to take part in the march.

This is the second time that the Kashmir Valley has been put under curfew since the imposition of Governor's rule after the Congress led coalition government resigned, following withdrawal of support by Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on diversion of land to the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB).

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and men from the Jammu and Kashmir Police had been garrisoned across the Valley to prevent violence.

All roads and bylanes in and around the Lal Chowk, which was the venue of the CC march for today, had been sealed with barbed wires. Bullet proof security force vehicles had been parked in the middle of the roads to thwart any attempt by people to enter the historic area, the nerve centre of the summer capital.
