Curfew and restrictions remained in force for the 41st day today in Kashmir.

Curfew remained in force in entire Srinagar district, Anantnag town and Pampore police station, which includes Khrew area where a man was killed today, while restrictions continued on the movement of the people in rest of the Valley.

Normal life has been paralysed in the Valley due to street protests since the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter with the government forces on July 8.

Heavy deployment of forces has been carried out in Srinagar city with all roads leading to the local office of United Nations Military Observers Group (UNMOG) at Sonawar sealed.

The authorities strictly imposed night curfew in the city in view of the separatists' call for march to the UN office over a 72-hour period beginning yesterday.

Schools, colleges and private offices remained closed while public transport remained off the roads due to the strike called by the separatists.

The attendance in government offices was thin.

Mobile Internet and mobile telephony services across the valley remained suspended.

However, broadband services were restored early this morning after five days.

Broadband services and mobile telephone services were snapped Saturday evening.
