Train service remains suspended in Kashmir for security reasons”

Mobile internet services remained suspended in four south Kashmir districts as well as in Ganderbal district in central Kashmir.

The Jammu and Kashmir government on Wednesday deployed security forces in Srinagar and other sensitive places in the state to maintain law and order, the Hindustan Times reported.

Syed Ali Shah Geelani and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq were detained by police as they tried to march from their residences to Shopian.

The authorities chose to close all educational institutions and postpone exams scheduled for Wednesday as tension continued in the Kashmir Valley. The curbs continue as a precautionary measure to prevent protests against the killing of 13 militants in three encounters on Sunday and five civilians in the aftermath of those encounters, the official said. Geelani and Mirwiaz are under house arrest while Malik has been lodged in central jail, Srinagar.
