SRINAGAR, India (AP) — Authorities have relaxed a curfew in much of Indian-ruled Kashmir after days of protests over the secret execution of a Kashmiri man convicted in an attack on India's Parliament.
However, the curfew remained in effect Thursday for the sixth straight day in more than a dozen places, including parts of Srinagar, Kashmir's main city.
The region was rocked by violent anti-India protests after Mohammed Afzal Guru was hanged Saturday in a New Delhi jail and buried there. Three protesters died in clashes with government forces.
Police on Thursday stopped nearly two dozen lawyers from marching in Srinagar to demand that Guru's remains be brought to the region.
The government also directed public employees to "attend their duties without fail," saying their identity documents would be treated as curfew passes.
