Joint resistance leadership condemn curfew in occupied Kashmir

Wani was killed in an encounter with Indian security forces previous year on July 8 in 2016. Police, CRPF, Army, BSF and ITBP personnel have been deployed in strength in IHC to maintain law and order and foil anti-India protests.

The Ministry of External Affairs on Sunday slammed Pakistan for glorifying slain Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani, whose death in an encounter in Anantnag on July 8 past year sparked deadly unreast all across Jammu and Kashmir.

Official sources said that the government had given the go-ahead to the security agencies to take "legitimate action" against those Indian nationals who were working for Pakistan, including calling them formally for questioning.

The internet services on mobile and the broadband services, which were suspended Thursday, were also unbarred.

Curfew was imposed in areas under the jurisdiction of five police stations - Rainawari, Khanyar, Nowhatta, M.R. Gunj and Safa Kadal - in old city Srinagar.

Following the protest calendar, the separatists have called for protests after Friday prayers today.

Speaking in a PTV programme, he paid tribute to Burhan Wani on the his martyrdom anniversary, saying Wani belonged to an educated family, who became a freedom fighter after his elder brother was killed by the Indian occupation forces.

Siddiqui said they were held in various jails and were being released as a "goodwill gesture" by the Pakistan government.

All roadblocks have been removed by the security forces and shops and business establishments, which remain open on Sundays, reopened this morning in Srinagar. Wani along with two of his aides was killed by security forces in an encounter at Bamdoora village of Anantnag on July 8, 2016.

Thousands of people have been injured, hundreds blinded by riot control pellets and more than one hundred killed in clashes between protesters and the Indian army since security forces killed Burhan Wani on July 8 a year ago.

Seven people have been killed in cross-border shelling in disputed Kashmir, with both Pakistani and Indian officials trading the blame.

Fearing pro-independence protests and demonstrations, the Indian authorities had increased the presence of its armed forces and imposed curfew-like restrictions across the region.

Security has been beefed up in the Valley, especially in south Kashmir districts.
