india Updated: Jul 06, 2008 15:35 IST

Curfew in the riot hit areas were relaxed for two hours on the third day in Indore on Sunday with only women were allowed to come out of their houses.

District Magistrate Rakesh Srivastava, however, described the situation as normal and peaceful as no untoward incident has taken place from any where in the city.

He said curfew was relaxed in the 13 police stations out of the total 27 in the city between seven and nine in the morning and only women were allowed to come out of their houses to buy necessary items.

Khajrana, Pandharinath, Malharganj and Chhatripura police stations, where communal violence started on July 3, were among the areas where curfew was relaxed, he said.

During the curfew relaxation, he said efforts were made to supply essential goods to people including vegetables, milk, water and foodgrains.

The city administration has ordered three hours curfew relaxation in 11 Police stations yesterday.

Curfew was imposed on July 3 as six persons were killed on communal violence on July 3 and 4 following the bandh call given by BJP in protest against Jammu and Kashmir Government's decision to revoke allotment of land to Amarnath Shrine Board.
