A ruling PDP MLA was injured in an attack by a stone pelting mob in Pulwama District in Kashmir where curfew remained in force on Monday (July 18) in view of clashes at some places even as newspapers failed to hit the stands for the third day. Curfew was imposed in all 10 districts of the Valley to curb the clashes in the aftermath of killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani. “All 10 districts of Kashmir Valley continue to remain under curfew today as a precautionary measure for maintaining law and order,” a police official said. He said the decision to continue the curfew was taken to maintain law and order in view of clashes at some places in north Kashmir’s Bandipora district and couple of places in the city yesterday. He said the situation across the Valley so far is peaceful. “However, a stone pelting mob targeted the vehicle of PDP MLA from Pulwama last night, resulting in injuries to the lawmaker (Mohammad Khalil Band),” he said. Police and paramilitary personnel have been deployed in strength across the Valley for strict implementation of the prohibitory orders, the official said. Although fewer incidents of clashes were reported yesterday, newspapers did not publish for the third straight day. While mobile telephony, except BSNL mobiles, is suspended across Kashmir for the past eight days, the mobile Internet services have also been downed across the Valley.
