Day 11: Officially imposed curfew and shutdown called by the separatists paralyses normal life in Kashmir

Separatist leaders continue to remain under house arrest and preventive detention in summer capital Srinagar

Officially imposed the curfew and a shutdown called by the separatists paralysed normal life for the 11th consecutive day in the Valley on Monday, June 18.

Officials told IANS that Sunday was the first day without any civilian casualty since the violence engulfed the Valley on July 9, following the killing of Hizbul Commander Burhan Wani in a gunfight with the security forces on July 8.

“A violent mob attacked a camp of the Rashtriya Rifles in Saderkot area of Bandipora district on Sunday forcing the soldiers to open fire in self-defence.”

“Four protesters were injured in the incident.”

“Except for stray incidents of stone pelting at some places, the overall law and order situation remained calm on Sunday across the Valley,” a senior police officer told IANS.

Over a week long cycle of violence has left 40 protesters and two policemen dead in Kashmir.

Authorities have officially confirmed that newspaper owners were asked not to publish newspapers till July 19.

Cable television services have, however, been resumed after service providers took off all Pakistan TV channels and two private Indian channels.

All mobile phone services including Internet and call facilities have been snapped across the Valley.

Limited call facility continued on post-paid cell phones provided by Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL).

All schools, colleges, and universities have been closed until July 24.

All job interviews by the state Public Service Commission (PSC) have also been postponed.

Closure of the strategic Jammu-Srinagar National Highway for over a week has caused a shortage of essential items in the Valley.

All supplies of essentials of life are routed into the landlocked Valley through this highway.

Train services between Baramulla town in the Valley and Bannihal town in the Jammu region also remained suspended for the 11th day on Monday, July 18.
