Srinagar: The efforts of the Jammu and Kashmir administration to reopen colleges in the Valley on Wednesday failed as students did not report to class work, on the 66th consecutive day since the abrogation of the state's special status under Article 370 on August 5.

Students also have not attended schools despite the administration's several attempts. The parents are reluctant to send their children to schools or colleges as they fear for their safety amid the shutdown and communication blackout in most parts of the valley.

On Wednesday, normal life continued to remain disrupted across Kashmir.

In the city, public transport remained off the roads but a massive traffic jam could be seen at the Jehangir Chowk crossing as private vehicles swarmed the commercial hub of Lal Chowk and surrounding areas.
