Restrictions lifted in Srinagar but mobile Internet services remain snapped

Authorities lifted restrictions in the valley, while the curbs on the movement of people in Kupwara continued for the fifth day following killing of five persons in security forces action since Tuesday.
Mobile Internet services remain snapped across the Valley. A police official said there are no restrictions in Srinagar today.He said the restrictions, imposed on Wednesday in six police station areas of the city, were lifted as there were no major protests on Saturday and no call for shutdown or protests.
However, the official said, strict curbs in some areas in north Kashmir, including Kupwara and Handwara towns, were in force for the fifth day to maintain law and order.
Meanwhile, normal activities resumed today elsewhere in the Valley as no separatist group has called for a strike for today.
While the government offices and educational institutions remained shut on account of Sunday, shops, fuel stations and other business establishments opened after four days in the city here and across other districts, the official said, adding public transport was back on roads.
