India cannot subdue occupied Kashmir by force, says prime minister

A Kashmiri boatman rows his shikara amid dense fog on Dal Lake

The Hizbul terrorist was killed by security forces on July 8 past year. The army conducted a flag march in Tahab and Haal areas of Pulwama to prevent protests.

A bounty of 10 lakh was put on him by the authorities and almost a month after the video was uploaded, Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with the Indian Security Forces. The killing of Burhan triggered a valley-wide uprising.

Due to security clampdown, people preferred to stay indoors today.

In uptown areas of Srinagar and other places in the valley where restrictions were not imposed, shops, public transport and other businesses remained closed and very little private transport was seen on the roads.

According to media reports, the self-styled successor of dead Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) commander Burhan Wani was killed in an encounter with security forces in the Tral region of Jammu and Kashmir on May 27, 2017. Most of the top leaders have either been detained or put under house arrest.

He said no yatra convoys were allowed to move to Valley from Jammu today.

Late on Thursday, authorities ordered internet service providers to shut down data services in Kashmir, citing the risk of anti-India forces using social media to stir up unrest. The services were snapped yesterday.

He said all necessary security measures were taken to ensure peace in the Valley on Burhan's death anniversary.

Pakistan-based Kashmiri terrorist Syed Salahuddin, who Washington last week added to a list of global terrorists, called for a strike on Saturday to mark Wani's killing and led the protest in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-controlled Kashmir. "(Mere bas mein hota toh Burhan Wani ko zinda rakhta aur unse dialogue karta)", Soz was quoted as saying by ANI. Police and paramilitary personnel fired tear gas to disperse the crowds.

The violence occurred as protesters clashed with police in Indian-controlled Kashmir, where the authorities have imposed a widespread curfew and cut off all Internet services after separatist leaders called for a week of demonstrations.

At least 10 people sustained injuries in the security forces action.

Almost 20 persons, including five women, were injured when forces fired pellets at protesters in areas of Shopian. The youths hurled stones at the army soldiers and clashes spread to other villages, including Arigam and Kounsarbal.
