New Delhi: After fifty crippling days of curfew imposed in the Kashmir Valley following the death of Hizbul Mujahideen Commander Burhan Wani, Anantnag town felt relief on Saturday when curfew was lifted in the region after forty-nine days.

Although curfew has been lifted in the region, people will not be allowed to assemble together to protest or stage a march, a police official confirmed.

The police official further went on to say that it was the first time curfew was being lifted from Anantnag town after it was imposed on July 5 in the region.

Curfew has also been intermittently lifted from parts of Srinagar, but due to relentless gatherings and protests, forces have had to re-impose the curfew.

More than 60 civilians have been killed in tensions across Jammu and Kashmir. A CRPF official was killed in Pulwama on Saturday.
