Srinagar: Curfew remained in force on eighth consecutive day across Kashmir on Saturday in the wake of clashes following killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani that has left 42 persons dead and over 3100 injured.
“Curfew continues to remain in force in all 10 districts of Kashmir valley today as precautionary measure for maintaining law and order,” a police official said.
He said the decision to continue the curfew was taken in view of large number of stone-pelting incidents across the Valley on Friday.
Police and paramilitary personnel have been deployed in strength across the Valley for strict implementation of the prohibitory orders, the official said.
Mobile telephone and internet services in the Valley also remained suspended and only postpaid connections of BSNL are working.
