Jammu and Kashmir Police has announced financial assistance to 728 personnel who were injured while tackling stone-throwing protesters across the Valley over the past two months.
Each injured policeman will be given R 5,000 from the Police Parivar Fund.
"Financial assistance has been sanctioned in favour of 615 police personnel and 113 special police officers, who were injured while maintaining law and order in the Valley from June 11 to August 2," a police spokesperson said.
Hundreds of people thronged Srinagar's markets, banks and medical stores to stock up on essentials after a nine-day curfew was lifted from the entire Kashmir Valley on Sunday.
Curfew was withdrawn from all nine districts of the state following improvement in the situation after days of violence.
Long queues were seen outside banks, ATMs, petrol pumps and medical shops.
Stray incidents of violence were reported in Pulwama and Anantnag districts. Shopkeepers rolled down shutters when protesters marched towards town squares.
