Curfew,shutdown continue for 10th day in Kashmir

Officially imposed curfew and a shutdown called by the separatists paralysed normal life for the 10th consecutive day in Kashmir on Monday.

Officials said that Sunday was the first day without any civilian casualty since the violence engulfed the Valley on July 9, following the killing of Hizb Commander Burhan Wani in a gunfight with the forces on July 8.

“Except for stray incidents of stone pelting at some places, the overall law and order situation remained calm yesterday (Sunday) across the Valley,” a senior police officer said.

Over a week long cycle of violence has left 40 protesters and two policemen dead in Kashmir.

All mobile phone services including Internet and call facilities have been snapped across the Valley.

Limited call facility continued on post-paid cell phones provided by Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL).

All schools, colleges and universities have been closed till July 24.
