Kashmir observes partial shutdown
Srinagar, Jul 08: Normal life was partially affected in Kashmir on Monday as separatists had called for a shutdown to mark the third death anniversary of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani while the authorities imposed restrictions to “avoid any law and order situation”.
Restrictions were imposed in four police station areas of Nowhatta, Khanyar, Safakadal and Maharajgunj in Srinagar. Officials said curbs were imposed as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order and avoid any untoward incident.
Mobile internet services were suspended in the four south Kashmir districts – Anantnag, Kulgam, Shopian and Pulwama — while the speed of internet was throttled in other areas of the Valley, officials said.
