Today is 31st consecutive day when Authorities continued curfew and restrictions in parts of Kashmir as life remained paralysed across the Valley.

Towns of Anantnag, Kulgam, Shopian, and Pulwama were under curfew. Restrictions continued in old city areas of Srinagar, north Kashmir’s Sopore, Baramulla, Handwara and Kupwara towns, police sources said.

For the first time since the ongoing violence started here, many senior officials of the district administration said they were not authorised to speak to the media.

“I am not authorised to speak to the media. You will get the official press release about the situation in the evening,” said a senior district administration official.

Separatists have asked people to block roads leading to the Civil Secretariat in srinagar and other administrative offices.

Education instituions, business establishments, and public transport remained suspended for over a month on Monday.

Separatist leaders have been placed under preventive detention. Although they have somehow been managing to issue weekly protest calendars.

A total of 55 people have died and over 3,000 others including security personnel injured in the ongoing unrest that started on July 9, a day after Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan was killed.
