Police on Tuesday said that overall situation remained peaceful in Kashmir, except for "three incidents of stone pelting by miscreants on police deployments in Awantipora, Lalpora Kupwara and Ajas area of Bandipora District".

Although restrictions under section 144/CrPC remained in force in the Valley, curfew was imposed in some parts of Srinagar and Anantnag town only, said a spokesman.

He said a group of miscreants assembled near village Chursoo, Awantipora on Srinagar-Jammu Highway and tried to block the Highway by pelting stones on the vehicles.

"In order to ensure smooth flow of vehicular traffic, the Police/Security forces reached the spot and chased the miscreants away," he added.

"A mob of 3000 people assembled near Jamia Masjid Lalpora in Kupwara District and started stone pelting on the police/security forces. Some militants were spotted in the mob. During dispersal of the mob two persons were injured. One of them was injured in stampede who has been referred to SKIMS Srinagar."

About 70 miscreants pelted stones on police/security forces deployment at Ajas, in the jurisdiction of Police Station Sumbal. There are no reports of injury to anybody so far.
