SRINAGAR: Jammu and Kashmir Principal Secretary Rohit Kansal on Monday said that 90 per cent of the valley was free of daytime restrictions.

Addressing a press conference here, he said that on the law and order front, out of 111 police stations in Kashmir, only 105 function or are territorial.

Daytime restrictions have been fully lifted from 92 police stations, up from 81 last week, he said.
