Srinagar, Sep 9 (ANI): Curfew was lifted from all parts of the Kashmir Valley in view of Eid-ul Fitr, which will be celebrated on Friday or Saturday.

"Curfew has been lifted from all parts of Srinagar, Anatnag and Bijbehara towns in south Kashmir in view of Eid-ul Fitr," a police official told.

Curfew was imposed in Srinagar on Tuesday and in Anantnag and Bijbehara towns on Wednesday after violent protests broke out over the killing of four persons allegedly in police firing at Palhalan in Pattan area of Baramulla District.

Meanwhile, several incidents of stone-pelting and arson were reported from different parts of Srinagar and Budgam district late on Wednesday evening.

Earlier, police had imposed restrictions on the movement of people in nine districts of the Valley as a precautionary measure.

The Kashmir Valley violence has led authorities to impose frequent curfew restrictions across the State.

Curfew was initially imposed on June 30 in parts of northern and southern Kashmir to stop demonstrations over the death of a couple of protestors.

It was lifted some days later, but was again imposed as fresh violence erupted. (ANI)
