Curfew in the entire Srinagar district as well as in two south Kashmir towns and restrictions in the rest of the Valley continued today even as normal life remained paralysed for the 44th day due to unrest.

Curfew is in force in the entire Srinagar district as well as in Anantnag and Pampore towns as a precautionary measure, a police official said.

He said restrictions on the movement of the people were also in force in rest of the Valley. The separatist camp has called upon people to assemble and occupy local chowks and centers from 3 PM to 5 PM today.

The separatists have also asked the people to paste letters, asking all ministers, MLAs and MLCs from all parties to resign from government and party positions, on walls around their residence and in the locality.

The separatist camp is spearheading the protests in the Valley over the civilian killings during the protests against the killing of Hizhul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani.

As many as 64 persons, including two cops, have been killed and several thousand others injured in the clashes that began on July 9.

Meanwhile, normal life remained paralysed for the 44th consecutive day due to curfew, restrictions and separatist sponsored strike. Shops, private offices and petrol pumps remained closed while public transport continued to be off roads.

Mobile Internet also continued to remain suspended in the entire Valley, while postpaid mobile services and incoming facility on prepaid mobiles were resumed yesterday.

However, outgoing facility on prepaid services remained barred. The separatist camp, headed by Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Mohammad Yasin Malik, has extended the agitation till August 25.
