Life returns to normal in Kashmir Valley

IANS  |  Srinagar 

Normalcy in the Kashmir Valley on Saturday as the separatists called off the ongoing protest shutdown for two days.

Shops, public transport, other businesses, banks, post offices and government offices started functioning normally as traffic snarls marked return of normalcy.

In their last weekly protest calendar that the separatists have been issuing for over four months now, protest shutdown has been called off for two days.

Authorities did not impose any restrictions in Srinagar or elsewhere to facilitate resumption of normal activities of life.

Kashmir has been under a clampdown for nearly five months since July 9, a day after Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani was killed in a gunfight with the security forces.
