Curfew was today extended to more areas of Kashmir Valley to maintain law and order in view of violent protests yesterday that led to death of a youth in Pulwama district and injuries to several others.

Curfew remained in force in five police station area of old city and was extended to Batamaloo, Shaheedgunj, Soura, Zadibal, Qamarwari and Bemina areas of the city as a precautionary measure, a police official said.

“There are restrictions on the assembly of four or more people under Section 144 CrPC in rest of Kashmir,” he added.

Meanwhile, body of an ATM security guard was found outside a hospital here.

Body of Reyaz Ahmad, which bore a big perforation in the abdomen, was found outside SMHS Hospital, a police official said.

He said while it was not clear how the youth had died, a postmortem was underway on the body to ascertain the cause of his death. The deceased was a resident of Bagiyas area of the city.

Normal life remained affected for the 26th consecutive day in the Valley due to the curbs imposed by the authorities and separatist sponsored strike against the killing of civilians during clashes which erupted in the wake of killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in an encounter on July 8.

Schools, colleges, business establishments, banks and private offices remained closed while public transport remained off roads.
