Sri­na­gar, Sept. 11: Re­stric­tions were lifted from most parts of Kash­mir on Wed­nes­day and some ar­eas in Sri­na­gar city wit­nessed an in­creased pres­ence of pri­vate trans­port lead­ing to traf­fic jams but schools re­mained closed and pub­lic trans­port was off the roads, of­fi­cials said.

The city wit­nessed in­creased move­ment of pri­vate ve­hi­cles on Wed­nes­day lead­ing to traf­fic jams at sev­eral places on the Karan Na­gar-Bata­maloo-Lal Chowk-Dal­gate axis, the of­fi­cials said. They said few auto rick­shaws and in­ter-district cabs were also seen ply­ing in some ar­eas of the city.

The of­fi­cials said re­stric­tions have been lifted from most ar­eas of the val­ley, but se­cu­rity forces con­tin­ued to be de­ployed to main­tain law and or­der.

The re­stric­tions were reim­posed in parts of the Val­ley on Tues­day to pre­vent any pro­ces­sion in the city and else­where in the Val­ley on the 10th day of Muhar­ram. The curbs on the move­ment of peo­ple in some parts of the val­ley are im­posed ev­ery year on the eight and the 10th day of Muhar­ram to pre­vent any pro­ces­sions.

The re­stric­tions were lifted in phases from many parts of the Val­ley as the sit­u­a­tion im­proved with pas­sage of time.
