Srinagar: Handwara, the epicentre of ongoing unrest in Kashmir, and its adjoining areas continued to witness trouble on Monday, prompting re-imposition of curfew-like restrictions after a three-hour relaxation even though mobile internet services were restored after four-day suspension. Authorities on Monday gave a three-hour relaxation from curfew-like restrictions in Handwara town in Kupwara district and adjoining areas from 8 am to 11 am with an intention of extending it if the period passed off peacefully. However, the relaxation period saw around 150 youth pelting stones in Handwara town, a police official said. “The protestors were chased away and there was no damage,” he said, adding that the curbs were then re-imposed. “Restrictions were imposed again in Handwara, Trehgam and Kralgund areas of Kupwara district following violent protests,” the official said.
