Curfew remained on Monday in most parts of the Kashmir Valley after intensified tension over the death of 30 people during protests against the killing of a top Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani.

 
The victims included 29 protesters and a police driver. They were killed during clashes with security forces, mostly in Anantnag, Shopian, Kulgam and Pulwama districts.
 
Shabir Ahmad, the first victim from Srinagar succumbed to bullet injuries late Sunday evening.
 
On Saturday, Kashmir Valley erupted in anger after security forces shot dead Burhan Wani, a top leader of the Hizbul Mujahideen, along with two of his associates on Friday. His funeral was attended by thousands.
 
Three policemen, who were taken hostage by angry mobs in south Kashmir on Friday, returned back safely, but their weapons were seized, police said here on Monday.
 
Four police stations, 36 civil administration offices and dozens of vehicles were destroyed by unruly mobs.
 
A total of 102 civilians and 100 security personnel were injured in the bloody clashes.
 
Meanwhile, no yatri was allowed to move towards the Kasmir Valley from winter capital Jammu to perform the Amarnath Yatra for the third consecutive day on Monday, police said.
 
"No Yatri will be allowed to move towards the Valley from Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas in Jammu city today," a senior police officer said.
