MINGORA, October 3: The curfew imposed in Madyan area of Swat district for the last two days has been lifted, local residents say.
The authorities had clamped curfew in the area soon after the killing of Special Police Force personnel Mr Mehboobullah, who was killed inside his home by unidentified gunmen.
Though officials have not confirmed any arrest during the search operation, local residents say the security forces have arrested several suspects from the area.
With the lifting of curfew, people have started visiting the markets for shopping as Eidul Azha is just around the corner.
Residents had demanded lifting of curfew because they said they would not be able to celebrate Eid and to slaughter sacrificial animals if it persisted.
