Srinagar: The Kashmir Valley on Monday remained shut for the 73rd consecutive day with authorities imposing curfew-like restrictions in parts of Srinagar city, Pulwama and Baramulla districts to prevent separatist called protest rallies.

On Sunday night, guerrillas snatched four weapons from the residential guards of a ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) district president in Anantnag.

All educational institutions, main markets, public transport and other businesses have remained suspended.

Eighty-nine people — 86 civilians and three policemen — have died since the ongoing unrest began on July 9.

Over 11,500 people have also been injured in this period.
