India hits out at Pakistan for glorifying terrorist Burhan Wani

Strict security arrangements have been made in Kashmir valley to ward off protests called by separatists to mark the anniversary of Burhan Wani's killing by Indian security forces on April 8 previous year.

"The Kashmiri people are steadfast to take their movement to logical conclusion", said Sharif in a message on the first death anniversary of Wani, who was killed in an encounter with Indian security forces previous year.

India imposed a widespread curfew, cut off all Internet services and deployed thousands of troops in Kashmir as the volatile Himalayan region marked the anniversary of a hugely popular rebel leader's death.

Inspector General of Police (IGP) IHK Munir Ahmad Khan in an order directed lease line Internet service providers to block all social media sites via lease lines from 10:00pm on Thursday night.
