New Delhi, Sep 12: The Centre today said the situation in Kashmir was slowly returning to normalcy and hoped that Eid-ul-Zuha festival tomorrow would pass off peaceful in the valley.

Mehrishi's comment came amidst the Jammu and Kashmir government's decision to impose "curfew-like" restrictions to prevent any outbreak of violence during Eid.

The decision to impose restrictions on assembly of large number of people has been taken in view of the call by separatists for a march to the local offices of the United Nations tomorrow. Unrest in Kashmir Valley has been continuing ever since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8.
