Curfew relaxed in violence-hit Bareilly

india Updated: Mar 16, 2010 12:37 IST

With situation limping towards normalcy in trouble-hit areas, curfew was today again relaxed as no untoward incident was reported from any part of the city, officials said here.

"With situation returning to normal, curfew in five police areas - Prem Nagar, Qila, Baradari, Kotwali and Subhash
Nagar - has been relaxed this morning again for eight hours, from 6 AM to 2 PM," they said.

However, sources said that the curfew has been relaxed conditionally and certain restrictions have been imposed as a
preventive measure.

The administration has decided not to allow fairs, organised on the occasion of navratri festival, sources said.

"The administration has also decided not to allow vehicles ply on the city roads and only pedestrians, cycles
and rickshaws have been allowed to move in the city," they said.

Curfew was clamped in four of the six police areas of the city on March 2 in the wake of communal clashes over
barawafat procession.

It was later extended to one more police area after fresh violence on March 11.

After 13-days, the curfew was finally relaxed for four hours yesterday.
