Kashmir continued to remain shut for the 79th consecutive day on Sunday even as restrictions on assembly of people remained in force in most areas.

"The entire Kashmir Valley is curfew-free today but restrictions are in place in many parts as a precautionary measure," a police official said.

He said the curfew was lifted following improvement in the situation yesterday.

There were no reports of any untoward incident from anywhere in the Valley today.

Shops and other business establishments remained closed due to separatist call for shut down for the 79th straight day while public transport remained off the roads.

However, markets are expected to open at 2 PM as the separatist groups have announced a 16-hour relaxation in the shutdown till 6 AM tomorrow.
