Despite restrictions in Srinagar city, private vehicles and three-wheelers were seen on the roads in city outskirts and vehicular traffic also resumed on many inter-district roads.

Death toll in the ongoing unrest has risen to 71 -- 68 civilians and three policemen -- while over 11,000 others have been since July 9.

Authorities have shifted senior separatist leader, Mirwaiz Umer Farooq to a tourist hut in the high security Cheshma Shahi area of Srinagar where he has been placed under detention.

A senior police officer said the hut was declared as a sub-jail under a notification by the state home department.

The worst hit during the present cycle of violence has been education of children as schools have remained closed.

Businesses have also taken a direct hit, suffering losses of over Rs 7,500 crore.
