Curfew lifted from 's Anantnag after 49 days 

Srinagar: Curfew was on Saturday lifted from south Kashmir's Anantnag town after 49 days, even as it remained in force in some other parts of the Valley, including Srinagar, to maintain law and order in view of the separatist plans to march towards the headquarters of Army at Badamibagh here.

Curfew was lifted from Anantnag town this morning but restrictions on the assembly of people remain in force, a police official said.

He said it was for the first time that the curfew was lifted in the south Kashmir town ever since it was clamped on July 9 following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with security forces a day earlier.

Meanwhile, normal life remained paralysed for the 50th consecutive day due to curfew, restrictions and separatist sponsored strike.

Shops, private offices, educational institutions and petrol pumps remained closed while public transport continued to be off roads.

The attendance in government offices and banks was also affected, the official said.

Mobile Internet also continued to remain suspended in the entire Valley, where the outgoing facility on prepaid mobiles remained barred.
