Curfew has been imposed in the valley ever since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani on July 8.

The curfew restrictions have been lifted from most of the parts of the Valley after 51 consecutive days raising death toll to 70 due to clashes between security forces and protesters.
