Curfew in the violence-hit Mandsaur district of Madhya Pradesh will be relaxed from 10 am to 6 pm, on Friday.
On Thursday, Mandsaur District Collector Om Prakash Srivastava said curfew would be relaxed for longer periods today in the district.
Curfew was relaxed for a few hours on Thursday evening.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has ordered a judicial enquiry into the deaths of five farmers during the recent agitation.
He has announced a compensation of Rs 1 crore to the kin of those killed and Rs 5 lakh for those injured in the violence.
Internet services in Mandsaur, Ratlam and Ujjain remained suspended following the farmers' protests.
Mandsaur has been facing a tense situation with farmers protesting over their demands for remunerative prices for their produce and a farm loan waiver not being met.
This, unfortunately, took an ugly turn earlier on Tuesday when five farmers were killed and eight others were injured in police firing.
