Curfew re-imposed in Kashmir valley

Curfew is re- imposed in South Kashmir and parts of Srinagar on Wednesday as the separatists calls for a march.

 
According to the reports, curfew will remain imposed in Anantnag and Kulgam districts, while restrictions under Section 144 have been imposed in Shopian and Pulwama districts.
 
Police and paramilitary forces have been deployed to maintain the law and order situation as protests were erupted again yesterday after authorities lifted the curfew from Srinagar, South Kashmir districts and other areas.
 
Mobile internet services were restored in the Jammu region on Tuesday after remaining suspended for 17 days in view of protests in Kashmir valley following the death of Burhan Muzaffar Wani.
 
The authorities again decided to break mobile internet services across 10 districts of the region. Barring BSNL post-paid mobile connections and landlines with broadband connections, the authorities suspended mobile telephony and mobile internet services across the valley.
 
With communication snapped, Kashmiris outside the state have been expressing concerns over their families’ welfare.
