Early Times Report

Srinagar, Aug 9: Life remained affected on Sunday due to lockdown imposed by the authorities in view of continued spike in COVID-19 cases in the Kashmir valley, where barricading on some more roads was lifted.
Administration in several districts had ordered fresh lockdown and other measures on August 1 to prevent further spread of coronavirus.
Shops and business establishments remained closed and traffic was off the roads in summer capital, Srinagar. However, private vehicles besides three wheelers were seen plying on the city routes. Defying lockdown some passenger vehicles were also plying on some routes, mainly in the uptown and highway bypass.
All major business hubs, including Lal Chowk, the nerve centre of the city continued to wear a deserted look with only security forces and some pedestrians seen moving. Goni Khan and Mahraj Bazar markets roads, which were closed with barbed wire, have been partly open Sunday.
Private vehicles were also seen plying on Amira Kadal bridge, the main link between HSHS and Lal Chowk. The road remained closed with barbed wire for the past about a week.
There was also no change in the situation in Maisuma, the stronghold of JKLF and adjoining areas. However, private vehicles , particularly two wheelers were seen plying on Budshah Bridge on Moulana Azad road though security forces and police personnel remained deployed.
There was no major change in the situation in the down town and Shehar-e-Khas (SeK), where shops and business establishments remained closed and passenger traffic remained off the roads. Though security forces have lifted majority nakas and other barricades, in several areas, including Nallahmar road, only one side of the road was open and private transport was allowed to ply.
The main gates of the historic Jamia masjid, stronghold of moderate Hurriyat Conference (HC) remained locked.
In the outskirts of the city some small shops were open and private traffic plying.
Life remained affected in other main towns and tehsil headquarters in the Kashmir valley, where lockdown was imposed from August 1 to contain further spike in COVID 19 positive cases.
