Preventive restrictions lifted across Jammu; schools, colleges to reopen tomorrow


Preventive restrictions lifted across Jammu; schools, colleges to reopen tomorrow

Preventive restrictions, imposed as a precautionary measure across the Jammu region on the eve of the Supreme Court's judgment on Ayodhya case, were withdrawn on Sunday night, an official said. However, controlled regulation with the deployment of forces wherever necessary will remain in force but it will not have any impact on normal life, according to Divisional Commissioner, Jammu, Sanjeev Verma.

Restrictions under section 144 of the CrPC came into force in the newly-created union territory of Jammu and Kashmir around midnight on Friday as a precautionary measure ahead of the apex court's verdict. After remaining closed on Saturday, all educational institutions including schools and colleges will reopen on Monday, Verma told reporters here.

He said the examinations in schools falling in the winter zone would be conducted as per the schedule along with other exams in the region. Thanking people for their cooperation during the restrictions, he said the conduct and behavior of the population is praiseworthy as the situation in the entire division remained peaceful with an untoward incident reported from anywhere.

"Given the peaceful situation in the region, the preventive restrictions which were placed were withdrawn completely. Only controlled regulation and deployment of forces will remain in force wherever necessary," he said. Meanwhile, Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Baseer Ahmad Khan in a brief statement said all schools, colleges, and other educational institutions will open across the valley from Monday.
