Normal life continued to remain affected in Kashmir due to separatist-sponsored strike on the consecutive 108th day on Monday.

While there were no curbs on the movement of people anywhere in Kashmir, an official said restrictions on assembly of four or more people were in place throughout the Valley for maintaining law and order.

He said forces have been deployed in strength at vulnerable spots and along the main roads as a precautionary measure.

Shops, business establishments and fuel stations remained shut, but are expected to open this evening as separatists have given a 14-hour relaxation in the shutdown from 5 PM.

The ongoing unrest in Kashmir has affected the education as schools, colleges and other educational institutions continue to remain shut in the Valley.

As many as 95 people have been killed and several thousand others injured in the ongoing unrest in the Valley since the July 8 killing of militant commander Burhan Wani.

Lot of movement of private vehicles was seen in many parts of Srinagar, including Rambagh, Jawahar Nagar, Bemina, Batamaloo and Tengpora Bypass earlier today.

However, public transport continues to remain off the roads.   (With PTI inputs)
