A complete lockdown prompted by the threat of Covid-19 disease entered a 7th day on Wednesday in Kashmir valley as roads were deserted and markets shut.
The markets across all districts of Kashmir valley remained closed and roads also remained blocked with concertina wires and manned by the police.
Only the people associated with essential services were allowed to move after checking their identity cards.
It is for the first time in recent decades that Kashmir valley is observing a lengthy lockdown for an apolitical reason.
The lockdown began on Thursday, a day after the first case tested positive in Srinagar following which residents across the city rushed to stock essential supplies and medicines.
A total of four persons have tested positive in the Kashmir so far and three persons have tested positive in Jammu.
