Curfew would continue uninterrupted in the Nowhatta and Zadibal areas as well as in Urdu Bazar, a police officer said.

Sectarian clashes between Shia and Sunni Muslims had erupted in the old city areas of Srinagar last week Wednesday. Curfew was clamped in nine police station areas when police failed to end the violence. This had been lifted Saturday.

While life  remained normal in all other places, clashes had again erupted in some parts after curfew was lifted. Authorities then reimposed curfew in these areas  Saturday.
