Background: The fast unto death of five Hindu volunteers entered 8th day and strong police guard armed with rifles was put at the entrance to the temple area. Several interior areas of Sringar, scene of most trouble, continued to be under curfew. The atmosphere was relaxed in equally large outer areas where curfew was lifted for the day. Streets were busy with traffic, vegetable vendors brought their vegetables in boats on the Jheluma river for sale. There was activity on the Dal Lake with 'shikar moving and a man got his delayed shave!
