Authorities in Srinagar on Wednesday relaxed the curfew for three hours to allow people to buy necessary household items, official sources said.
The curfew was relaxed in the city from 8:00 am to 11:00 am, they said, adding the relaxation would be extended if the 3-hour period passes peacefully.
The authorities clamped curfew in all the ten districts in the Valley for the first time in 13 years after the protests in the tense Kashmir region spread in escalating violence that left another 12 people dead in firing on Tuesday by security forces, taking the death toll to 18.
