Jammu and Kashmir: Curfew continues in Kishtwar

Curfew continued for the third day in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kishtwar district on Saturday.

It was imposed after the killing of BJP state Secretary Anil Parihar and his brother on Thursday night, police said.

The Army carried out a flag march in the curfew bound areas of Kishtwar while the police and paramilitary forces were positioned in Bhaderwah and parts of Doda districts.

A complete shutdown was observed on Friday in the Chenab Valley against the killings.

Anil and his brother Ajit were returning home on Thursday evening from their shop in Kishtwar when they were fired upon from close range near their house.

Both rushed to the hospital where doctors declared them brought dead.

Mobile and Internet services have also been suspended in Kishtwar and other sensitive areas of the Chenab Valley.
