Authorities on Saturday suspended mobile internet services in Kashmir Valley following the killing of Jammu and Kashmir's most wanted militant Burhan Wani in an encounter with forces.

Besides, the authorities also imposed curfew-like restrictions in the entire district of Pulwama and in the towns of Anantnag, Shopian, Kulgam and Sopore, officials said here. 

In Srinagar, restrictions have been imposed in areas falling under seven police stations which include Nowhatta, Khanyar, Rainawari, M.R. Gunj, Safakadal, Maisuma, Kralkhud. All school board exams scheduled for the day have been postponed. 

Train services from Baramulla in Kashmir region to Banihal town in Jammu have also been suspended. 

Wani, along with two associates, were killed by the forces on Friday. His burial could not take place on Friday as authorities feared massive protests. 

Scores of people using different mode of conveyance tried to reach the area of gunfight in south Kashmir's Kokernag area and Tral town, to which Wani belonged. 

Meanwhile, the separatists including Syed Ali Geelani, moderate Mirwaiz Umer Farooq and Asiya Andrabi have called for a valley-wide shutdown to protest Wani's killing. (With IANS inputs)
