In the aftermath of the killing of militant commander Zakir Musa, curfew continued in parts of the Kashmir valley on the second consecutive day.
Curbs continued on the movement of people in parts of Srinagar, and Kulgam and Pulwama towns. Schools and colleges remained shut, while mobile Internet continued to be suspended across the valley. Trains on the Baramulla-Banihal line remained off the tracks due to the situation.
“Curfew continued to remain imposed in parts of the Kashmir valley today (Saturday) as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order,” officials said.
In Srinagar, the officials said, “strict restrictions” were in place in Nowhatta, Rainawari, Khanyar, Safakadal and M R Gung police station areas, while “partial restrictions” were in force in Maisuma and Kralkhud areas.
Zakir Musa, the chief of the Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind, was killed in the encounter at Dadsara village of Tral in the south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Friday.
