SHABIR IBN YUSUF
Srinagar, Feb 12: The authorities Tuesday late afternoon relaxed curfew from some areas of civil lines in Srinagar, Budgam in central Kashmir and Handwara in north Kashmir. Sources said decision about curfew relaxation in other parts of the valley will be taken Wednesday morning after assessment of situation.
The curfew was relaxed in the areas of police stations Raj Bagh, Ram Munshi Bagh and some areas of police stations Kothi Bagh, Saddar and Sheergari from 4 PM to 7 PM. Curfew was also relaxed in areas of police station Handwara from 2 PM to 4 PM and Budgam from 4 PM to 6PM.
Official sources said that curfew was relaxed after DGP Ashok Prasad chaired a situation assessment meeting at Police Control Room here.
“We were asked to have a test of the situation by relaxing curfew in some areas of city,” a senior police official, who attended the meeting, told Greater Kashmir. “We have decided not to clamp it again in the areas till there is no untoward incident.”
The police officer said during the meeting every district SSP was asked to assess the situation Wednesday morning and report to higher-ups. “Upon their feedback it would be decided whether to relax the curfew or not,” he said.
The officer said the DGP directed all officers to exercise maximum possible restraint in dealing with the situation.
