Abu Dujana killing:Educational institutes closed,Internet services suspended


Srinagar—Authorities Tuesday suspended class work in all educational institutions across Kashmir in the wake of protests after the killing of top Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) commander Abu Dujana in an encounter with government forces. 

All schools, colleges and universities have been closed for the day, Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Baseer Ahmad Khan told PTI. 

Khan said he issued the order for the closure of educational institutions as a precautionary measure in view of the prevailing situation. 

Meanwhile mobile Internet services were also suspended across Kashmir in the wake of clashes after the killing of  Abu Dujana.

A police official said that mobile Internet has been suspended across the Valley to prevent ‘miscreants from indulging in unnecessary propaganda’. 

He said the facility has been suspended across all service providers and platforms like 2G, 3G and 4G. 

Although broadband Internet services on landlines were functional, the speed has been choked to prevent uploading of videos and large images. 

The official said the suspension of mobile Internet services was a precautionary measure in view of protests following killing of two LeT militants, including Dujana.

Clashes broke out in many parts of the Valley following killing of  Abu Dujan and his aide in Pulwama.

A civilian was killed and several others injured today as government forces opened fire on protestors near the encounter site where two militants were killed.
