Srinagar: After remaining paralysed for two straight days due to shutdown and government imposed curbs, life in most parts of the Valley on Monday started limping back to normalcy.

Joint Resistance Leadership had called for two-day shutdown on July 7 & 8 against shifting of Dukhtaran-e-Millat Chairperson Syedah Asiya Andrabi and her associates to Delhi’s Tihar Jail, and to commemorate the 2nd death anniversary of iconic militant leader Burhan Muzaffar Wani.

Fearing widespread protests on the shutdown call, government had imposed curbs and snapped internet services across the Valley.

Reports said that after two days of closure, all shops, offices, business establishments, banks and petrol pumps in Srinagar and other major towns and districts of the Valley reopened this morning. The transport that was off the roads from last two days, also plied normally.
