Curfew reimposed in Kashmir towns after fresh violence

Srinagar, July 10 (IANS) Curfew was reimposed in Maisuma locality here and Jammu and Kashmir’s Anantnag and Pulwama towns Saturday after stone-pelting mobs clashed with security forces, authorities said.

‘Miscreants resorted to stone pelting in Maisuma and in Anantnag and Pulwama during curfew relaxation. Curfew was reimposed at these places,’ a senior police officer said.

Markets remained closed and public buses did not ply in most parts of Srinagar city. However, people poured out of their homes to buy essential items and private transport plied on the roads.

Curfew was relaxed Friday in the Kashmir Valley for an indefinite period to facilitate the celebration of the holy Muslim festival of Shab-e-Meraj (ascension of Prophet to heaven).

But it was not relaxed in Sopore and Kakpora towns for the fourth day Saturday.
