Burhan Wani death anniversary: Army reviews security situation in Kashmir Valley

APHC General Secretary Shabbir Ahmad Shah at a meeting of Democratic Freedom Party at his Sanat Nagar residence in Srinagar, today, announced the posthumous title "Tamgha-e-Jurrat" for martyr Burhan Wani for his courage, steadfastness and huge contribution to the Kashmir freedom movement.

The authorities will also enhance and deploy more security in the Valley especially in south Kashmir areas where protests and militant activities are on a spurt.

Curfew was imposed in Tral, the native town of Wani, in Pulwama district as a precautionary measure to maintain peace in the valley, a senior police official said.

According to the state police department, militancy has seen a resurgence in several parts of south Kashmir where there wasn't any militant presence for nearly a decade now. His killing triggered over five-month long unrest in the Valley during which 90 people were killed and over 13000 injured in forces' action on protestors.

Widespread protests erupted in the Kashmir valley after Wani's death. Look the way they have imposed strict restrictions all around to prevent people from observing his death anniversary... "Police resorted to tear gas shelling", said a local requesting anonymity.

In the hometown of Burhan Wani, authorities have sealed the grace of the slain Hizb commander while raids were conducted, according to sources, at his home as well as other areas of Tral and adjoining places but they were resisted by locals who came out of their homes and staged protests.

He said: "The truth is that Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had said she would have let Wani live". Despite a ceasefire agreement that was reached in November 2003, sporadic skirmishes continue in Kashmir. Wani's martyrdom also exposed Indian propaganda about foreign interference, he pointed out.
