Restrictions on the movement of people continued in parts of Srinagar for the third consecutive day on Thursday, while curbs were lifted from other areas of the valley. A police official said the restrictions were in place in Nowhatta, Khanyar, Safakadal, M R Gunj and Rainawari areas of the summer capital.

The curbs are a precautionary measure as one of the militants killed in Wednesday’s encounter in Budgam was a resident of Nowhatta, he said. The official said the curbs were lifted from all other areas of the city as well as elsewhere in Kashmir as the situation was improving.
