Roads were blocked with barricades and wire coils. Shops were shut and vehicles remained off the roads. Restrictions were imposed in the two south Kashmir towns of Pulwama and Kakpore.
Mohammad Sayed Khan, special commissioner ofBaramulla informed that the curfew was relaxed on Sunday, Jul 11 in Sopore town till 11 am to enable people to purchase essential commodities. But the mobs indulged in stone-pelting in the market when curfew was relaxed.
The protest shutdown called by the hardline Hurriyat Conferece group led by Syed Ali Geelani also affected the normal life apart from the restrictions in Srinagar.
