Kashmir newspapers to be available from Wednesday








Srinagar, Feb 12 (IANS) Local newspapers in Kashmir would hit the stands Wednesday as their editors said authorities had told them to resume publication, while cable operations were again normal.

"We have been told to resume publications of our newspapers from tomorrow. Authorities have also said security forces have been instructed to treat identity cards of our staff members as curfew passes," the editor of a local newspaper told IANS.

Local newspaper editors had said they had to suspend publications Monday and Tuesday on the orders of the authorities.

Cable operators in Srinagar also said they have resumed operations after three days. They had Sunday stopped transmission under orders from the authorities.

Although there was no official confirmation of stop to cable operations and newspaper publication, senior police officers said the administration was worried about spread of rumours in the tension-ridden Valley after the Saturday execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

In another development, police lodged an FIR against the security force unit whose personnel allegedly fired at protesters in north Kashmir's Watergam village Sunday leading to the death of a teenaged protestor.

Meanwhile, curfew continued without any relaxation in all the ten district headquarters of the Valley for the fourth day Tuesday.

Reports of sporadic clashes between protestors and security forces have come in from some places in the curfew-bound areas, but there has been no major incident of violence.

Three people have died so far during the protests in the Valley after Guru's hanging.
