Kashmir remained shut for the 80th consecutive day on Monday, although markets in Srinagar had opened.

 
Separatists had advised people to start normal activities after 2 p.m. on Sunday till 6 a.m. on Monday.
Even after separatist's "relaxation" in protest calendar, some youths had appeared in Kashmir areas forcing closure of markets.
 
Till now, the separatists have put the blame on security forces for imposing restrictions during short periods of "separatist relaxation in protests".
 
Since July 9, the separatists have called for protests and shutdowns through weekly protest calendars.
 
A total of 87 people including two cops have died in clashes between mobs and the security forces in till now.
