Kashmir remains under curfew and restrictions with protests erupting in some places on Sunday, a day after a top Hizbul Mujahideen commander's killing sparked an uproar during which a civilian was killed by forces and almost five dozen protesters wounded. Police and security forces used "maximum restraint" while dealing with the situation at these places and stone pelters were dispersed, he said. Section 144 of the CrPC was imposed in parts of south and central Kashmir to prevent any law and order issue.

Prohibitory orders were imposed in Ganderbal, Badgam, Baramulla and Kupwara districts, while heavy deployments of police and paramilitary forces were made in south Kashmir districts of Shopian, Anantnag, Kulgam and Pulwama.

The Agenda of Alliance sealed by the BJP and the PDP before they formed the government in the state talks about holding dialogue with all internal stakeholders. Also, over 4,000 security personnel were injured in stone-pelting incidents and mob violence. As long as there is stone-pelting, there can not be dialogue. Just like the martyrdom of Wani, we understand that the blood rendered by Sabzar will give a new vigour and strength to the freedom movement and all attempts by Modi government to malign it will go waste as the world and saner elements within India themselves admit of the indigenous nature of the movement. "They will have to understand it", he said.
