SRINAGAR: A shutdown called by the united resistance camp continued in Kashmir on Tuesday despite relaxation of curfew in the Valley.
"Except for Pulwama town and two police station areas of Nowhatta and M.R.Gunj in Srinagar, there would be no curfew anywhere in the Valley," a senior police official said.
"In order to maintain law and order, restrictions under section 144 CrPc will, however, continue."
Union Home Minister, Rajnath Singh is arriving here on September 4 heading an all party delegation to the Valley which will hold meetings with local leaders aiming to stop the unrest.
Officials, however, said the delegation has no plans to meet any separatist leader who have been put under detention.
Separatists have extended their protest shutdown call up to September 1 asking people not to resume normal activities.
Despite lifting of curfew, no major markets or public transport moved on the roads in summer Srinagar and elsewhere in the Valley on Tuesday.
For the last 53 days, all educational institutions have also remained closed.
