Meanwhile, several towns in Kashmir have been put under restrictions ahead of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani's death anniversary. Notably, curfew is already in place in Tral region of Pulwama and Section 144 has been imposed in sensitive areas of Baramulla, Anantnag and Sopore.

The Jammu and Kashmir police had also directed internet service providers to completely suspend their services in Kashmir from Friday until further orders. Curfew-like restrictions were earlier imposed in parts of Kashmir to ward off protests called by separatists to mark the anniversary of Wani's killing in a gunfight with security forces past year.
