Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Aug 8 (ANI): All government employees, who are working at divisional and district levels and serving civil secretariat in Srinagar, will report back to their duties with immediate effect, state Chief Secretary said on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the administration announced that all educational institutions will reopen on Friday in Samba.
The district administration Samba said in its order that all the educational institutions both government and private schools shall re-open with effect from August 9 to function as usual.
Amid the tensed situation prevailing in the state with the heavy deployment of forces, academic institutions in various districts, including Samba were shut down as 'measure of caution'.
On August 5, the government had imposed restrictions under Section 144 Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC) in Jammu and Srinagar districts, which is to remain in force till further orders.
As per the order, there will be a complete bar on holding any kind of public meetings or rallies during the period of operation of this order. Identity cards of essential services officials will be treated as movement passes wherever required.
Jammu and Kashmir was stripped of its special status and reconstituted into two Union Territories- Ladakh without legislature and Jammu and Kashmir with the legislature - which has stoked a controversy with opposition stating that it is 'unconstitutional'. (ANI)
