Srinagar, September 11
Restrictions were lifted from most parts of Kashmir on Wednesday and some areas in Srinagar city witnessed an increased presence of private transport leading to traffic jams but schools remained closed and public transport was off the roads, officials said.
The city witnessed increased movement of private vehicles on Wednesday leading to traffic jams at several places on the Karan Nagar-Batamaloo-Lal Chowk-Dalgate axis, the officials said.
They said a few auto-rickshaws and inter-district cabs were also seen plying in some areas of the city.
The officials said restrictions had been lifted from most areas of the Valley, but security forces continued to be deployed to maintain law and order.
The restrictions were re-imposed in parts of the Valley on Tuesday to prevent any procession in the city and elsewhere in the Valley on the tenth day of Muharram. The curbs on the movement of people in some parts of the Valley are imposed every year on the eight and the tenth day of Muharram to prevent any processions.
Meanwhile, normal life remained severely affected in Kashmir due to shutdown which entered 38th day on Wednesday.
Markets and other business establishments remained closed, while public transport was off the roads across the Valley, the officials said. PTI
