Srinagar: J&K Police on Sunday said that the situation across Kashmir Valley remained “peaceful” and is “under control”.

The authorities had to impose curfew at many places including summer capital and strict restrictions at many other places to prevent people from coming out on road against killing of top Hizb ul Mujahideen commander, Sabzar Ahmad Bhat.

Sabzar, a trusted lieutenant of slain militant commander, Burhan Muzaffar Wani, died fighting forces in Saimoo village of Tral along with a 15-year-old aide, Faizan Muzaffar Bhat. Situation turned violet as the news about Sabzar’s death spread across Valley.
