Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Aug 14: Restrictions imposed in Jammu have been completely lifted but curbs will continue in some places in Kashmir for a while longer, a senior Jammu and Kashmir police officer said on Wednesday and emphasised that the situation is totally under control.
There have been no major injuries to anyone, Additional Director General Munir Khan said.
He added that there a few pellet injuries in the Valley but those have been treated.
"Restrictions imposed in Jammu have been completely removed. They will continue in some places of Kashmir for sometime," he told reporters.
According to Khan, there were localised incidents in various parts of Srinagar and other districts in the Valley.
But these were contained and dealt with locally.
"Our biggest endeavour is to ensure there is no civilian casualty," he said.
Asked about the number of people detained, Khan said he would not talk about individuals.
"In a law and order situation like this, there are different kinds of detention. Preventive detention to ensure the established miscreants do not vitiate the peaceful atmosphere. So you have to take preventive steps," he said.
Jammu and Kashmir Principal Secretary Rohit Kansal, who also addressed the media, said the overall situation remained calm in the state.
"Further relaxations in prohibitory orders have been given in a large number of areas, including in Srinagar, and these relaxations will continue to be given till this afternoon," he said.
On all other fronts -- civil supplies, national highways, airport, medical facilities -- the situation was normal, Kansal said.
"Local authorities, as before, are keeping a close watch on the situation and offering relaxations wherever the situation warrants it," he said.
The clampdown came into force on August 5 when the Centre stripped Jammu and Kashmir of its special status and bifurcated it into the union territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
