Srinagar—Curfew continued in parts of Kashmir for a second day Saturday following killing of Zakir Musa, the so-called chief of an Al-Qaeda affiliated group, in an encounter with security forces in Pulwama district Friday. Officials said the curbs on the movement of people were in force in parts of Srinagar, and Kulgam and Pulwama towns. Schools and colleges remained shut, while mobile internet continued to be suspended across the valley. “Curfew continued to remain imposed in parts of the Kashmir valley today (Saturday) as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order,” they said. The officials said security forces have been deployed in strength in other parts of the valley to avoid any untoward incident.
