Jammu, Aug 9: The Army on Saturday Aug 9 withdrew curfew relaxation in several Districts of the Jammu, which have been rocked with violent protests over the Amarnath land row.

According to the Police, curfew restriction is imposed in Samba, Jammu, Rajouri and Kathua as a precautionary measure as an all-party delegation headed by Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil arrived here to review the situation. Army troops also staged flag marches in Jammu, Samba, Kathua and Poonch districts early this morning. There is no report of any untoward incident so far from any curfew-bound area.

Meanwhile, Shri Amarnath Sangarsh Samiti (SASS), the group spearheading the agitation has decided not to hold talks with the all-party team.

Following the Samiti's decision to boycott the talks, the programme of the delegation would be rescheduled.
