In the wake of tensions erupted following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter on July 08, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday will visit Jammu and Kashmir to review the current situation in the Valley.

In the wake of tensions erupted following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter on July 08, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday will visit Jammu and Kashmir to review the current situation in the Valley.

Rajnath Singh will hold meetings with various delegations in Srinagar during his two-day visit.

Meanwhile curfew and separatists-called protest shutdown marred life across the Valley for the 14th day running on Friday.

Authorities imposed curfew in all the 10 districts of the Valley on Friday making announcements on loudspeaker mounted on police vehicles and asked people to remain indoors.

Sources in the state administration said curfew will be strictly enforced to prevent post Friday prayer violence in the Valley.

Separatists have already extended their protest shutdown call up to Monday.

State Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Thursday visited bereaved families in south Kashmir Anantnag district whose members have been killed in the ongoing violence that has claimed 45 lives.

The chief minister also met families members of those who have been injured during protests those began on July 9, a day after Hizbul commander, Burhan Wani was killed in a gunfight with the security forces.

Authorities had announced opening of schools in four districts of Baramulla, Badgam, Bandipora and Ganderbal on Thursday.

Due to prevailing tension and continuing curfew in these districts, the decision to re-open schools failed to encourage parents to send children to schools.

Encouragingly, no major incident of violence took place anywhere in the Valley.
