Curfew, shutdown continues in Kashmir

The ongoing curfew in most places of the Kashmir Valley continued on Thursday.
“Curfew shall remain in force in all the major towns of the ten districts in the Valley and old city areas of Srinagar city,” a senior official said.
Curfew has been imposed in the Valley since July 9 to control large scale violence following the death of top Hizbul Mujahideen commander, Burhan Wani, 22, who was killed in a gunfight on July 8 along with two of his associates.
Train services between north Kashmir’s Baramulla town and Jammu region’s Bannihal town also remained suspended for the sixth day on Thursday.
All exams scheduled up to July 17, have been postponed as authorities said fresh dates for holding these exams would be announced later.
