Kashmir rises in protest after Hizbul commander Burhan Wani killed in encounter

Protest erupted all over Kashmir after the killing of one of the most-high profile militant Burhan Wani along with his two aides in a joint operation of Army and Jammu and Kashmir police on Friday evening.
Protesters were burning tyres and stopping vehicles along the Srinagar-Anantnag Highway even as announcements were made on public address systems with youths raising slogans in support of Wani, Indian Express reported. Curfew has been imposed in South Kashmir even as Hurriyat chairman Syed Ali Geelani and JKLF chairman Yasin Malik called for a strike to protest the killing. Geelani also exhorted the people to participate in Wani’s funeral “in large numbers”.
The state government while imposing the curfew also put a ban on internet to prevent its misuse.
