Srinagar: Curfew has been lifted from most of the areas in Srinagar after the long span of 45 days. However, the normal life in the valley still remains affected due to restrictions and strike that have been going since the last 46 days following the encounter of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani. 
Some of the areas will still be under curfew including five station areas of downtown city and three of the uptown. 
A police official also said that following the improvement in the situation in the valley, the restrictions on the movement of the people have also been removed. 
As per the reports yesterday, the Valley witnessed a peaceful and relaxed environment all through yesterday, except for the five incidents of stone-pelting. 
However, the assembling of four to five people in the Valley is still restricted. The restriction has been imposed under section 144 Crpc.
Things turned sour in the Valley after July 9, when Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani was shot dead in an encounter which followed protests and clashes leading to the death of around 65 people and injuring thousand others.
