Authorities on Sunday relaxed curfew for varying periods in six of the ten districts of Kashmir valley.

Curfew was eased for three hours in all parts of Srinagar from 9 am this morning, a police spokesman said.

He said curfew was relaxed in Bandipora and Pulwama from 8 am while in Baramulla, Budgam and Kupwara districts from 10 am.

However, no relaxation was given in rest of the four districts of Shopian, Kulgam, Ganderbal and Anantnag districts, the spokesman said.

Curfew was clamped in all the ten districts of Kashmir valley to thwart the move of Hurriyat Conference to stage a sit-in at Lal Chowk in the heart of the city.

Top leaders of both factions of Hurriyat Conference, JKLF, Dukhtaran-e-Millat and other separatist outfits have been detailed.
