Srinagar: Newspapers hit the stands on February 13 after a gap of four days due to imposition of curfew in the Valley following hanging of Parliament attack convict Mohammad Afzal Guru.
All the major newspapers were available at the stands and delivered to subscribers at their residences this morning after a gap of fours days.
The authorities had imposed curfew in the Valley on February 9 morning after Guru was hanged inside the Tihar Jail in Delhi.
The newspapers had to suspend their publication as the authorities did not issue any curfew passes to the media persons.
Kashmir Editors' Guild (KEG) has condemned the government stopping publication of newspapers. Meanwhile, mobile internet services remained suspended and news channels on cable network continued to be off air for the fifth day.
