Authorities on Friday imposed strict curfew in Kashmir to prevent the people from hitting the streets to protest against the killing of Hizbul-Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, his two associates and 38 others killed in week long protests across Kashmir. The Valley has been witnessing continuous shutdown and curfew for the past one week.

Witnesses said that police and paramilitary forces have been deployed in strength across the Valley to thwart any protests.   

Pertinently, separatists had asked the people to stage protests after Friday congregation prayers today. 

Meanwhile, internet service and cellular services were also snapped on Thursday evening. However, state run BSNL service and broadband were working at a very low speed.
