Life in Kashmir Valley returned to normal on Sunday after three days of curfew and strike following the killing of a youth in alleged security forces' firing in Nawa kadal area of the city.

Shops opened in the city as well as other parts of the Valley, while transport services have also also resumed plying on all routes.

Authorities had imposed curfew in the interior areas of the city following the killing of the youth Bashir Ahmad Bhat on Wednesday when security forces allegedly opened fire to chase away stone-pelting protesters.

The protests erupted in Nawa Kadal area in interior of the city when security forces were being withdrawn after poll duty.

While separatist groups had called for a strike for only one day on Thursday, people all over the Valley observed a spontaneous shutdown for two days on Friday and Saturday.
