"Restrictions on assembly of four or more people continue to remain in effect in rest of the Valley," the official said. He said the curbs on movement of people had to be extended today in view of fresh violence in some parts of the Valley yesterday which left three persons dead and over 150 others injured.

54 people have died and more than 6,000 injured in clashes between protesters and security forces following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter on July 8.
