After remaining closed for three days, shops and other commercial establishments including banks and petrol pumps have opened up in Srinagar and in the other parts of the valley. Moreover, transport services have also resumed plying on all routes.

Authorities on Sunday had imposed curfew-like restrictions in most parts of Kashmir to foil the plan of separatists of holding protests to mark the death anniversaries of Guru and Bhat.

Guru was hanged to death and buried inside Tihar Jail in Delhi on February 9 last year while Bhat met the same fate on February 11, 1984.

Separatists had planned to take out protest rallies in support of their demand for return of mortal remains of Guru and Bhat.

Several Hurriyat leaders were detained while Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani was put under house arrest as a preventive measure.

Barring some incidents of stone-pelting, the three-day period of agitation by and large passed off with no major miss-happening.
