However, deployment of security forces continued on the ground to maintain law and order, the officials said.

Strict restrictions on the movement of people were imposed across the valley on Friday in view of apprehensions of law and order problems after congregational prayers.

Only ambulances and people in emergency situations were allowed to move.

The officials said the situation remained peaceful on Friday and no untoward incident was reported from anywhere in the valley.

However, normal life remained affected across the valley for the 27th consecutive day on Saturday.

The markets continued to remain shut, while public transport was off the roads, the officials said, adding schools also remained closed.
