Barring Sopore town, curfew was lifted on the 13th October 2010 from the entire Kashmir Valley but normal life was disrupted due to a strike called by hardline faction of Hurriyat Conference.“Curfew has been lifted from entire Kashmir Valley this morning except some places in Sopore town,” a police spokesman said here.
He said curfew remained in force in Shalipora, Ashpeer, Iqbal Colony, Chankhan and Neharpora areas of the apple town, 52 kms from here.
Curfew was imposed late on Monday night to thwart a planned march by separatists to the Hyderpora residence of hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani yesterday.
Normal life was today hit due to a strike called by the hardline faction of Hurriyat as part of its protest calendar.
Shops, banks, private offices and business establishments were closed while public transport was off the roads, official sources said.
