J&K: Thousands gather for funeral of Hizbul militant Burhan Wani

The situation in the valley was tense on Saturday afternoon as thousands gathered for the funeral of Burhan Muzzafar Wani to be held at Eidgah in Tral town of Jammu & Kashmir.
Wani, the posterboy and guerilla of the Hizbul Mujahideen in J&K was gunned down by security forces along with his two accomplices in an encounter on Friday.
Reports suggest that many more are expected to reach the funeral as they are making detours to reach Tral in spite of restrictions by security forces against huge assemblies.
Some separatist leaders also made attempts to reach Tral to address gatherings but they could not get through the tight security.
Earlier, stone pelting was reported in Pulwama area of J&K even as a curfew-like situation prevailed across the valley.
Clashes were reported in some parts of Srinagar and south Kashmir, but security agencies were keen to avoid any incidents which could kick off a cycle of violence.
In Srinagar, restrictions have been imposed in areas falling under seven police stations which include Nowhatta, Khanyar, Rainawari, M.R. Gunj, Safakadal, Maisuma, Kralkhud.
Mobile internet services were shut since Friday to prevent rumour-mongering by anti-social elements.
Amarnath Yatra has also been suspended for a day keeping in view the security concerns of the yatris.
All school board exams scheduled for the day have been postponed.
Train services from Baramulla in Kashmir region to Banihal town in Jammu have also been suspended.
