Srinagar Schools in Kashmir valley reopened after summer break on Monday.

The government had announced an early summer break to avoid trouble during the week-long protests following the first death anniversary of slain militant leader Burhan Wani on July 8.

The summer vacations for schools and colleges started from July 6.

The Jammu and Kashmir government had on Friday dismissed rumours of summer vacations being extended and said schools will open as scheduled.

News stories from last year were being circulated on social media about holidays being extended, forcing the government to issue a clarification.

Meawhile, DPS Srinagar opened after a June 24 encounter on the school premises.

Two militants had entered the school after attacking a CRPF vehicle at Pantha Chowk in Srinagar.

Buildings were damaged in the school after the attack.
