Restrictions Eased Out in Kashmir ,After Death of Separatist Leader Geelani

Most restrictions have been eased, and mobile internet connection has been successfully restored in most parts of Jammu and Kashmir, the J&K Police said on Tuesday. The development comes four days after hardline separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, 92, died in Srinagar.

“Most of the restrictions are eased including the Internet, and the situation is fully normal in both regions of Kashmir and Jammu but under close watch,” Jammu & Kashmir Police said in its latest bulletin.

Voice calls and mobile internet was suspended till 5 PM on September 6 in Jammu and Kashmir to keep a vigilance after bizarre incidents were reported at some places. However, last evening, the police said that internet services were restored in eight of the ten districts in the Kashmir valley on Monday.

Director-General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh earlier complimented the Police CAPF and Army deployments for the highly professional handling of the ground situation over the last five days, following the death of the senior separatist leader.

Geelani died last Wednesday night at his residence here after a prolonged illness. The body was laid to rest at a graveyard in a nearby mosque.
