Worried of large scale violence after Friday prayers, officials have clamped curfew in all the 10 districts of the Valley.

 
For almost a week now, internet connectivity and mobile phone operations had been suspended in Kashmir districts of Shopian, Khugam, Pulwama and Anantnag,.
 
But on Thursday all internet connectivity -- both on mobile phones and fixed line -- has been suspended in the entire Valley.
 
Reports said limited mobile phone connectivity will continue on phones of one service provider in the Valley.
 
This step has been taken since all state government officials have been provided mobile phones of a particular company and their operations is important to coordinate the law and order maintenance during the day.
 
Meanwhile, curfew continued for the seventh day in the Valley on Friday.
 
So far, 36 persons, have died in clashes between security forces and mobs those hit the roads after Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani was killed in Anantnag district last week.
 
Intermittent clashes continued at over a dozen places on Thursday when curfew defying stone-pelters engaged with security forces.
