Curfew was lifted in Jamshedpur on Saturday, barring the four riot-affected police station areas where it was relaxed from 5am to 8pm, after the situation became normal, officials said.

With no untoward incident reported from anywhere, curfew in all the police station areas, except the four clash-hit police station limits, was withdrawn from 5am on Saturday, a senior district official said.

However, in the four clash-hit police station areas -- Mango, Azadnagar, Olidih and MGM -- curfew was relaxed from 5am to 8pm and would again be in force from 8pm to 5am on Sunday, he said.

As life limped back to normal, all government schools reopened from Saturday, he said.

Security forces kept vigil in different pockets of the city, which had been on boil since Monday last in the wake of clash between two rival groups.

Deputy commissioner Dr Amitabh Kaushal and senior superintendent of police Anoop T Mathew had last night told a press conference that there was no official complaint about any eve-teasing incident and the clashes triggered following disputes between two rival gangs over past enmity.
