Normalcy restored in Jammu and Kashmir following civilian killings 

After three days of unrest over the killings of seven civilians in clashes that followed an encounter in Pulwama, Kashmir limped back to normalcy on Tuesday. According to officials, life has returned to normal in most parts of Kashmir, including in the central and the northern districts.

Shops, offices, fuel stations and other business establishments opened Tuesday morning and normal traffic was witnessed on the roads in the summer capital of the state, they said.

Many areas in four districts of south Kashmir, however, witnessed a shutdown, officials said.

Classes have been suspended in most colleges in the valley, including the Kashmir University and the Islamic University of Science and Technology (IUST), as a precautionary measure.

The IUST has postponed examinations that were scheduled to be held Tuesday.

Mobile internet was restored in the valley, except in four districts of south Kashmir, on Monday night. However, net speed in Srinagar has been downgraded, the officials said.

The decision to restore high-speed services in Srinagar and mobile internet in south Kashmir would be taken after assessing the situation, they said.

Seven civilians were killed on Saturday after the security forces had opened fire at a mob that had thronged the site of an encounter in Pulwama district in which three terrorists and an Army man were killed.
