Defying curfew, the protesters took out the rally in Dogra Hall area of the city.

They said the “terror war has been started by Pakistan”, as a Major was among four soldiers and a policeman who were killed while a brigadier and DIG were among the nine security personnel injured during the gun battle in Pinglan area of Pulwama district Monday.

Dimple threatened to intensify holding intense protests as he alleged Pakistan for starting a full-fledged proxy war against India in Kashmir and across the LoC.

He appealed the Government of India to start massive clean up operation in the entire Kashmir region.

Authorities Tuesday relaxed curfew for two hours in the jurisdiction of three police station areas of Jammu, while it continued to remain in force in rest of the city, which had witnessed massive protests in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, officials said.
